Remember when ....

Post by justhinkn » Sat Mar 03, 2018 9:07 am

Trying something new. Start every comment with, Remember when ....

(I'm looking forward to all the reminiscing this will hopefully bring.)

we used to play Cowboys and Indians at school with pop guns, bows and arrows! Then, when we got tired of playing, we would pull out our pocket knives and whittle. :-o
