  1. My list: (1) Cleaning up after my mother made fudge. (2) Going for a walk with my mother and sister on the site of the 1932 Olympic Village. (3) Playing with my WWII toys: little planes and boats. (4) Reading comic books. (5) Being read to from Winnie The Pooh. (6) Going to Fern Dell for a picnic with a different Winnie. (7) Going to the little engine park. (8) Reading the “funny papers” on Saturday night. If only they were still as funny…(9) “Midnight Lunch,” when my father got home from his county medical meeting, woke us up, and fixed fried baloney sandwiches for us. (10) Playing in our canvas teepee.


  2. 1. Learning to ride the bicycle my dad decided to buy for me and my brother.
    2. Reading more, I realised much later my love for books, and fiction
    3. Trying to be a better bigger sister to my sister
    4. Taking up on the offer to learn knitting (free of charge)
    5. Climbing more trees
    6. Actually making the tree house my brother and I imagined.
