What was your favorite pasttime as a child? Did you prefer doing it alone or with someone else?
I was 4 years old, younger than my closest in age sister, and our lives didn't go along the same line. I was an introvert, so my friends were few although I did have friends.
I guess playing house was my favorite pasttime. I had quite a bit of toy furniture; i.e. kitchen cabinet, table, straight chairs, rocking chair, a couple doll cribs, etc. My neighborhood friends would come help me dispurse them into rooms. We would scrape up what tidbits our mothers would give us; i.e. crackers, cheese, etc. One girl's folks mother always gave her money for candy. So, we went to the store and bought penny candy that had the most pieces. We had tea parties.
