Do You Want to Play With Me?


We recently had a 50's theme dinner theater at my church. One of my dear friends brought a pair of skates like these as a decoration on our set. I had several of the young people ask me what they were. When I told them and explained how they worked they reaction was the same each time...you're kidding! LOL! I have many childhood memories of hollering at a neighbor and asking if you wanted to play. This fun image from Mo Manning could have been me right down to the scabbed knee! As spring approaches...oh, wait it is here...I thought this was a good way to remind a friend to stop and play.  I am entering this card at the following challenges:
Since I am thinking of 'days of old' I have a song for it:
Mocking Bird Hill by Burl Ives
When the sun in the morning
Peeps over the hill,
And kisses the roses 'round my windowsill
Then my heart fills with gladness
When I hear the trill
Of the birds in the treetops on Mockin' Bird Hill

Tra-la-la, twiddly-dee-dee
It gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird's trill
Tra-la-la, twiddly-dee-dee
There's peace and goodwill
You're welcome as the flowers on Mockin' Bird Hill
Have a great week-end!
