Once Upon a Tribulation

Mon 3/17 Blog Prompt: Happy St. Patty's Day. Today's Prompt is Once Upon a Time (page about childhood toys)

Those were the days, LOL. Maybe they were. Barbies, Barbies everywhere. We had Barbie houses, Barbie furniture (that my mom made), a wardrobe to die for (again mom made)and probably tons more. ddpup and I played Barbie alot. Oh we had other dolls too, but I think Barbie was the one we played the most with. Except for our walking doll. She was the same size as ddpup and could wear her clothes. We use to pretend she was another sister.

What I remember most though were the games we played with mom and sometimes even dad. Scrabble, Monopoly and various card games like War, Go Fish and Old Maid. As they came out we also had Mouse Trap and Mystery Date (you know the one with Poindexter the geek).

When we were traveling we use to have the bingo cards with windows that closed over the state license you located. That was a lot of fun for us especially when we were going cross country.

Now we play just about all our games on the computer, LOL.

I love board games but with sisters who were 10 and 12 years older than me, I had a hard time finding anyone who would play them with me. My own hubby doesn't even want to play board games with me. That was the best part of teaching: I could find lots of people to play board games with me!

Remember the 101 Elephant joke book on that one trip from Illinois down to Florida?

Oh my gosh! I LOVED Mouse trap and I had that projector too I think...you had to take it in the closet to get the projected images to show! Remember Merlin? The big red phone looking thing?
I like the font on the LO..thanks for posting it. I have had no mojo lately. Maybe this week I can do SOMETHING!
