Not counting camping as a kid, my first camping experience was in a tent in TN with my late husband and then 8 year old daughter. It rained every day...till two hours before it was time to leave. Two hair dryers would have been nice...as would a dry trailer. LOL!
Now for the interesting product...not everyone wants a handheld GPS but would like an easy way to get back to camp when hiking, find a car in a parking lot, etc. Here is an easy to use $50 solution (although there is a newer one for $68).
Now to the memories....Stu and I were talking at dinner about things our parents used to say to us to get us to clean our plates. I was told about the starving children in China. Stu was told about the people starving in Armenia...no idea where that came from.
That got me to thinking about those phrases, some we ended up saying to our kids even though we swore we wouldn't. Others went the way of the older generation. My mother used to always tell us to "Put your wants in the Boston Globe". Another was 'If wishes were horses all beggars would ride".
I know most of us heard "Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about". LOL! Then there was the "Don't make me tell your father...". Except in my house my mother was the disciplinarian and since Stu's dad was career Navy, so was his mom. Then there was "Close th door, were you raised in a barn?"
My brothers loved to lean back onto the rear legs of the dining room chairs and they heard "If God meant you to do that he'd have made chairs with two legs".
I'm sure we've all heard, "If I've told you once ... I've told you a thousand times"...and many of us probably said it to our kids. LOL!
So, what are your childhood memory sayings?
Till next time - keep on rollin',
