Sunday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
What was your favorite childhood toy?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

       WOW! There are so many!

       I enjoyed the Lincon-Logs, Super-Ball, Slinky, GI-Joe (I still have him, in perfect condition, including the wood box), Clackers, Board Game Uncle Wiggly, Eclectric Car set.

     All of them were fun!

  I guess my guitar , I was playing since age 8 and played in church and the music always took me to a place of my own . Not to mention making me popular , which to a bi-racial kid was a great thing .Got to be on the altar with the priest and play with the choir too and played in neighborhood bands as a teenager , it was great fun !

   My favorite "toy" I guess, was not really a toy at all. When I lived in England, my nanny used to make "news paper towns" on rainy days. Which was almost every day as it was always raining.

     After the divorce, when we moved to the US, I got a kaleidoscope. Oh I loved kaleidoscopes!

My music box teddy bear. I got it when I was about four or so. I carried it everywhere I went. After my brother broken the box I operated on it and removed the busted parts, sewed it up, and put a dress on it. When it's eyes fell out I sewed button eyes on it. When the stuffings went flat I restuffed it. 38 years later I've still got it. It's stored in a hope chest in my room. It's thread-bare, been patched many times, but I can't bring myself to throw it out. It's a symbol of a happy childhood.

I liked my Slinky. Mostly though, I played outside! Those were the days! I'd rather play outside than inside with toys. Actually, I don't remember having many toys growing up...but I had a wonderful childhood.
