Monday Morning Question:
Describe a "sound" from your childhood. What was it? When did you hear it? What does it bring to mind?
My answer: Crickets. I love the sound of them. Yep. I remember the night I lay awake listening to them on the eve of 4th of July when I was a little child. All six of us kids were sleeping in the playroom (yes, there were six of us kids - I had four sisters and one brother), and it was late in the night, and I lay awake listening to the crickets. It was so much fun and there was so much excitement. The first bit of excitement was that we all got to sleep in one room in a "slumber party" type arrangement (because it was a holiday). The second bit of excitement was that tomorrow we would see the fireworks. Oh, what excitement there was in childhood. Crickets always bring me back to childhood excitement.
