Flashback Fridays - 2nd Post

I know I already posted today, but I just visited Tara over at Too Much Information, and decided to join her party. Go on over to her blog and join in. This sounds like a lot of fun.

This is a picture of me, circa 1967 or so. I am playing with my cackerpickers. I used to go to the big tree in granny grump's backyard and put a bunch of caterpillars in that white box. I would then take one and chase my granny through the house with it. She would run from me, screaming for my mom to get me...I am laughing about it now.

Then I would go outside and take them out of the box and let them crawl up my tickled. Then, my little sister (2 years younger) would come out on the porch and stomp on them, squishing them as I was trying to rescue them by putting them back in the box.

I think I'll get even with her by posting some of her old pictures here...revenge is best served cold.


  1. LOL. I love the memory. I was into potato bugs and ladybugs myself. So funny! I wish I could see your little cute face!

    Yes, I'm going to try this for a few weeks and see if anyone plays along. You're the only one who's signed up so far, but everyone who left comments said they like the idea. So we'll see what happens the next few weeks....

    You'll have plenty of time to get revenge on your sister! Mwah hahahaha!

  2. What a cute little red head!! I remember being in first grade and we would find caterpillers at recess and bring them into class and stick them in our pencil boxes...then we'd feed them grass and leaves.....

  3. What a great pic...Visiting all the people from Tara's linky's :)

    What a great memory! Watch out little sister. :)

  4. Too cute! I love that you have the picture with it on your leg! I do so hope that you get your revenge!!


If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. No need to point out my mistakes, I have family for that.
