Monday Memories: The Fourth!

March 29th, 2009 · 11 Comments

Go and check out previous Monday Memories! The First, The Second, and The Third!


I was looking through some old photos and I found this one of me and my mom’s first car.  This really brings back some memories!  My mom did not drive when I was little.  It’s funny, I think that she knew how to drive and I think she had a driver’s license.  We had one car and it was my dad’s, and she never drove it.  She and I would walk to the one bus stop in town and ride the bus into the small city that we lived outside of.  It was very close.  I loved riding the bus!  I remember the exhaust fumes and the smell of the seats.  My memories are that it was always warm and cozy on the bus and I would sit snuggled up close to my mom.  It was so exciting!  Sometimes we would go into the city to shop and then stop and buy doughnuts before we got on the bus.  I would get to eat a jelly doughnut on the ride back to our neighborhood.  I remember those times as some of my best memories of childhood.  I wonder if these times were special to my mom or if it was just another day, another moment.

What are you remembering today?  If you have something to share with us today, leave a link to your blog post or photo in Mr. Linky.  If you don’t have a blog, tell us about a memory in the comment section.  I want to hear from everybody!  Please remember to:

    What a great shot! Good question – I wonder if my kids and I will share the same perspective on certain memories. Of course I will be glad if something I find routine does have a special spot in their memory years from now :)

    I feel sure those memories are special to your mom as well, just maybe in a different way.
    You look so very happy in the photo – so sweet.
    I just love hearing about other people’s childhood memories. Thanks for sharing and allowing this opportunity for us to go down memory lane too.

    What a great photo…I love the car!!! I have a “65 Mustang that was my first car, but it was a classic before that…I’m not that old!!!

    Great memories! I do think kids think everyday stuff is fun and we don’t even know it. That’s something to think about.
