We all have memories of our home when we were growing up. Were there any special items in the house that you remember fondly? Maybe it was a huge chair that you would curl up in. Or you loved the basement or attic of the house. Was there a huge old fashion bathtub in the house where you grew up that you just loved?

I do remember two things I loved about the house I grew up in. One was the attic. We could access it from upstairs were my bedroom and my brothers bedroom were. I had boards across the ceiling joists and lots of scratch insulation up there but it was so neat to sit in there when it was raining and listen. The other thing I loved was a tiny room that was tucked under the stairs. We used it for storing canned goods and other kitchen items. It had the tiniest door and if you were a large person there was no way you could get in there. The door was right next to where the refrigerator was in the kitchen. It was such a tiny place but I just loved going in there and putting away things for mom and dad.

What special things did you love about the home where you grew up?

I remember this one chair that I could spin around in. I would use my foot against the wall and keep myself spinning. I loved to get dizzy. But one day I noticed that I got a big blister on my toe from spinning and pushing off from the wall. I remember it scared me and I said that I wished it was just a dream. I never spinned after that.

I use to like to get on the beds and hang over backwards so that everything looked upside down. I would imagine that the ceiling was the floor and visa versa. I thought that was so cool.

Thanks for the memories Chutzie.

Hugs, Karen

I have fond memoies of playing down the basement when I was a kid. My brothers, sister
and I would rollerskate down there in the winter time, whooping and hollering; chasing
each other around the furnace. Back then the rollerskates we wore had keys! turn
