I remember...

I think it's a good thing to tap into your memory at times when you need a lift or want to reminisce, bring back good thoughts or remember some that had a role in shaping who you are. For this girl, I love and cherish memories as they're often times, smile makers, while other times, gives you a good foothold in what's troubling you. Either way, post them, whatever they are, permitted types of course, as some we won't probably want to bring to the mix here.

I remember, being a little girl of 6 and riding my horse to school. I remember taking her or him, pieces of the lunch that I'd prepared for myself. I remember riding home, watching TV for awhile, no one home, then getting on my horse and going to my ''Brownie/Bluebird/Girl Scout'' girlfriends house to visit her family. Such nice people, the whole family was nice and peaceful and genteel. I didn't think it odd that they were on the TV show I'd just watched either.
That TV show was the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans show.

I remember the first time I saw my husband... I remember the birthday party we were at for his girlfriend, my good friend. I remember how every one there except Paul and I were very "Seattle style" black leather jackets, black leather boots, jeans, tight tee-shirts. I was wearing a skirt and Paul a sweater and jeans... I remember how we spent the whole night talking, I remember thinking, " he's listening to me!!!" I remember thinking that we really didn't fit in with the rest of the group. Most of all I remember going to bed that night thinking that my friend had met the most perfect man for ME.

My favorite childhood memory is riding my horse, everywhere! To the store and on the way collecting glass soda bottles for the nickle deposits and buying a whole bag of penny candy. I use to barrel race him and after I was done practicing I would take the saddle off and ride bareback to the nieghborhood lake and take him swimming to cool him off. He use to love sticking his head half way under the water and blow bubbles. That horse (Leo) was the best $250.00 my parents ever spent on me. He kept me out of trouble through my terrible teens. He and I were together for 26 years.

Oh my is all I can say to both of these posts.
Thanks for adding your personal stuff for us to read.
I love them both.

I remember riding to Spawns Ranch which became Charles Mansons' hangout with his disgusting buddies/cohorts. I remember the owners asking my friend Kathy and I to please help them out there and take people on their trail rides as they were short handed. We were 9 or 10. But we did. CM and his group were the scariest seeming people she and I had ever seen. We'd get there, put the nickle in the soda machine, grab our Orange soda, get on our horses and conduct the trail rides.

I remember a sweet girl I went to grade school with. She and I were best friends until her family moved a couple towns away in 7th grade. I heard today that she passed away...

She was 31 and made some bad choices in life.

I remember making up dance routines to Debbie Gibson and Madonna songs in her basement. I remember she collected clowns. I remember her bedspread looked like a zebra. I remember going to Smartie Artie's for pierogie pizza. I remember she tried to kiss my big brother in the tunnel at Chuckie Cheese's on my birthday. I remember she used to wear three different color scrunchies in her hair at one time. I remember she was a sweet girl. And bright. And always happy.

Jill, that is a sweet story and I too, am sad for you that she's now gone.But see, I think the memory of her is a good one for you. She mattered.

I remember loving cotton candy and lemonade and hot dogs on a stick when our parents took us to POP.
Then my boyfriend [now husband] started taking me there.
The money he spent on those things for me just to make my heart sing, I loved him for that and still do. I wish it was still open because I would take our grands there and they'd be full of glee, but Pacific Ocean Park has long since been a thing of the past, rats...

I remember taking David on the corkscrew at knots Berry Park. I remember his tears and his sreaming at me when we got off ... " Didn't you hear me...I said I wanted to get OFF!!!"... I remember taking him again a few years later. I remember him loving the ride that time!! I remember his childhood hugs. I remember his little curls before I cut them off the first time. I remember the comfort of falling asleep with him in my arms.
