~It's My Life~

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.


  1. I love this post...once again getting to know a fantastic blogger!

  2. These are fun to read, Rondell. It's great to look back at fun memories. :)

    And your remodel looks great! All that hard work and never ending dust was worth it!! You have such a knack for decorating. And gotta admit, love all the blue. :)

  3. Rondell,
    Love the cupboard!!!! Looks like you had a great 4th!! Have a great day!

  4. It's so fun to read about yr past. I had not heard of a "foundation" home but it makes perfect sense, why not build UP? Double the space!

    The garden and yard sound pretty, so old-fashioned with the morning glories on a string! I do that too!

  5. I'm enjoying these posts about your life, Rondell! I can tell your dad was a special man from the way you talk about him!

    Have a great week!

  6. What a neat post. I like hearing how you used be as a child.


  7. Hi Rondell, I just happened upon your blog today and I'm dying of curiosity! Are you possibly my old penpal from long long ago? I had a penpal from PA named Rondell. Is that you? - verlene brooks

  8. Interesting Rondell. I enjoy reading about your past.

  9. This is wonderful! Wish I had more time to do it too - maybe one of these days! I think we grew up in the same era and it brings back lots of memories. (I was born in 1951.) Dawn

  10. Hi Rondell. Oh I loved this post. We had stoop also. Not many people use that anymore. I had to pop over this evening. I would like to share my Outdoor Wednesday with you. Please stop by and read it. It will touch your heart and make you smile. Happy Wednesday my friend. Country Hugs, Sherry

  11. Great post! I enjoyed it very much.

  12. I love this! I keep wanting to join this....but I can't seem to get it all together to do it! LOL Have a great week! ♥

  13. Glad you like the labels and angels, but I can't wait for you to see what we have coming for Halloween!!! Love to read all of your memories, Dawn
