  2. Fun assortment. I like the diving style of the kid tripping into the water. I had that move down at his age too.

  4. When you don’t want to talk about the elephant in the room, the least you can do is keep him clean.

    That second photograph really scares me–not only sax and violins, but also an accordion *and* a concertina in the band! J.

  7. While I think it’s cool my daughter is growing up in the digital area, there are some childhood hallmarks I wish we could have shared. Saturday morning cartoons, for example. Bugs Bunny and such, actual animated cartoons. Oh, and back when cereal boxes had a toy surprise inside. You didn’t need ten pounds of padding and helmets for a simple bikeride. Letting your kids bicker over who rode shotgun up front wasn’t some matter of endangering their lives with airbags. They could play in the front yard without some well meaning person reporting you as neglecting your children and leaving them unsupervised for pedophiles to snatch up.
    And darn them rules against indoor elephants as pets so you gotta wash them outdoors even to this day.
    I guess Snapchat is her version but I still have great nostalgia for 8 a.m. Smurfs on Saturday mornings and riding my back to the local shop where I could get 20 pieces of candy for 20 cents.
    I did ride my T-rex to the store, though, so I am pretty old ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Here’s another one. Saturday morning at the local movie theater: cartoons, shorts, and two shoot-em-ups for a nickel.
