What do you think of when someone mentions the 1950s? Elvis? Dick Clark? Poodle skirts?
Life back then was a lot more than the famous personalities and latest fads. In my book, In the thrill of the night, I recall some of the common experiences of children and families that didn’t always make the history books. Experiences such as
• going out to play without an adult hovering in the background,
• playing sports without a coach demonstrating the proper way to kick a field goal,
• and best of all, inventing your own games.
I know it’s hard to believe for some, but there really were a lot of things to do before video games and the internet.
What do you remember about the 1950s? What do you cherish about those days? What do you wish you could forget?
Write me and share some of your adventures and memories. The best will be posted so others can read them.
