Saw this on Meari's Musings blog, and told her I wanted to play too! She assigned me the letter 'W'.
Here's the 'blurb' and my list: Comment to this message and I will assign you a letter of the alphabet. Then go to your blog and post a list of 10 words that begin with this letter and what they mean to you.
1. Wisdom - comes with age and life experience (or at least one hopes so).
2. Why? - one of my favorite questions and has been all my life. Tends to annoy people a great deal, but I just want to know the reasons for things.
3. Who, What, When, Where, Why - the questions a journalist must cover when writing a story.
4. Waste Knot - a starting knot used in cross stitch that later gets cut off.
5. White Christmas - something I don't see now that I've moved to Texas, although we did have a few inches a couple years ago on Christmas Eve. I was even able to build a small snowman. It was such fun and really nice that it was all melted within a couple of days.
6. Wonderful - makes me think of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" - one of my favs.
7. Wash & Wear - the only kind of clothes they make, right? :D
8. Whoop-te-do - an old phrase I just thought of that is a sarcastic remark to someone who says something I couldn't care less about. I think of this everytime my rude neighbor says most anything. I prefer to not hear him talk or even not to see him. I like to avoid ugly spirited people such as him.
9. Whiny - the type of people who really irritate me.
10. Wishful - How I feel when browsing all the cross stitch catalogs. :-)

We went to the movie theater on Saturday mornings to watch great movies like 'The Blob' & 'The Mummy'. There was always a cartoon along with the main showing. It cost 25 cents for the movie & a big box of popcorn was 15 cents. There was no such thing as movies on TV. The VCR and DVD players hadn't yet been invented, so either you went to the theater or you didn't watch movies. And of course, there was the drive-in movies. You could pack up big bags of homemade popcorn to take along. I still miss the drive-in movies.My family didn't have a telephone, but most everyone else did. Phone number exchanges were letters (like WE5-5555). The WE stood for a name (like Westmore) and there were different names all over the country. Also had party lines and private lines were just beginning. Imagine 'sharing' your most personal secrets over the phone with your friend and having MANY other people being able to listen in to your conversation. LOL I always loved going to my grandma's and listening in on her party line phone - until I got caught and had to hang up. LOL Girls were not allowed to wear pants to school - only dresses and skirts. And they had to 'at least' touch the knee or we'd be sent home to change. And of course, we had those awful blue jumpsuits for gym class that we all hated. Ratted (teased) hair was the fad and we slept in big brush rollers. Oh, did they hurt and I'll never understand how I could have slept in those things! Our family ate dinner 'together' every night to meals my mom cooked on a stove. There were no microwaves yet. There were also no fast food places. In fact our area got its very first McDonalds when I was in junior high. The burgers were 15 cents and fries 10 cents. We'd walk over from school at lunch time and buy some fries - IF we had any money, which most of the time we didn't. Going to the store and buying 'penny' candy was a real treat. Yes, we really did have penny candy. Wax lips, twix sticks, sugar ice cream cones, mary janes, & little boxes of pumpkin seeds were just some that I remember. Lots of sugar but not much chocolate. Halloween was like candy payday and it was so much fun. But my mom would take all the candy and let us only have a little at a time. Now I know why I didn't have any cavities as a child. :-) So much has changed over the years. Some good and some not so good, but it's always fun to think back and remember the good times. Just cannot imagine how I survived without my computer and blogging. LOLOLOLOL
