It's My Life is hosted by Julie of Tattered Threads and Willing Hands
1. What did your home look like? Was is a house or an apartment? What color was it? Was it one story or two? We lived in what was called a foundation back in the early 50's, my dad built it, a one story. It had livingroom kitchen and 3 bedrooms and bath. When I was 12 he built a house, ranch on top by borrowing a little bit from Federal Credit, gee, try doing that today:0 It had 3 bedrooms, livingroom, kitchen and bath. The foundation was then a basement.
2. What was your neighborhood like? We had a great one, I had two best friends back then I can't even remember meeting them and we would play together in the spring, summer, fall and winter. Summer's were hot back then and winter's were cold and the snow lasted until April.LOL
3. Did you have a lawn? Did you have flower beds? Did you have a garden? Did you help care for the flowers or garden? My dad had a huge garden right beside the house...corn, tomatoes, green peppers, lettuce, potatoes and green onions...nothing tastes like my dad's garden and what I wouldn't give to have one of his tomatoes again. He did the gardening hisself I guess it was his relaxtion and hobby:) Mom had flowers all over, I remember morning glorys growing on a string to the top of the porch roof and me popping them. They both had green thumbs!
4. Did you have a front stoop or porch? We had a stoop I guess and on the house dad later built we had a porch on the front and patio off the back.
