    When I was a kid I used to think

    that all dogs were male and all cats were female. I also thought 3rd place was better than 1st because it was a bigger number. Lol

    So Much Easier.

    It was so much easier when you had no care in the world. Not having any bills to worry about. Not having to work. Being a grown up sucks sometimes.

    Turn Back the Time...make Everything Right...

    There is nothing like chlidhood,that's true.The fact that you're not aware of any painful feeling and that there is always someone to stand up for you and make everything alright is irrplaceable...But It's not only that,If only I could return back to childhood and start over,I...

    Child-Like Wonder I was walking near a candy

    shop when I spotted a little boy. He was eyeing at the candies inside while his mother wasn't looking. He looked like he was thinking of some naughty scheme to trick his mother into buying him some sweets. Watching him made me smile. Beautiful childhood.

    Be A Child Again

    If there's something an old person could ever wish for that is Youth. Youth is so rare that we cannot just get it anytime we want. It is like time. They will never be there again because they only cross our way once. Be thankful we had those childhood memories, good or bad...

    In Some Ways

    I miss some aspects of my childhood - but not everything. I miss the large prairie lot at the end of Mulligan and Mobile, with the two big billboards advertising such things as Riverview's opening days and other things. You could see from the sidewalk whenever a bus was coming...
