OK, now before I start – I already know that I am warped when it comes to dreams. But, here goes. My dream had me back on my grand parents farm in Massachusetts – why – because yesterday, I went with the West Coast Camera Club Meetup group to Tampa Bay Salvage Company – which is an Architectural Salvage company located at 7o0 N Pinellas Ave, Tarpon Springs, FL. After seeing so many items from my childhood – some restored and others laying in bins waiting to be found, I dreamed of the farm and things I used to do back when I was a child. My marbles were kept in a little what would be now called a vintage tin.
Radio Flyer – though this model was well after my time in a wagon……(no comments needed on that one…)
Oh now, that treadle stand that belonged on sewing machine is now a base for a sink. And finally –
the old meat grinder. Oh many hours did I stand swinging that crank arm around our meat grinder – that was clamped onto the kitchen table.
It was such a tme with no fast food places and when you sewed or at least repaired your own clothes, and toys were played with the imagination of the child – no electricity or electronics involved – a sting and a couple of marbles or a wild west wagon and you played outside until your mom called you in after dark. ohh such dreams.
So how many of you remember these items?
