I’m sure most people in my forty-something age group had “simple” childhoods like mine, compared to today’s standards and technology. You know, the days when we only had 3, sometimes 4 channels to watch on television. Of course that was plenty since you had get up and walk across the room every time you wanted to change the channel. One of my simple childhood activities I remember was making Kleenex flowers. It was a momentous occasion when we got the really big box of alternating pastel color tissues in one box. Glorious day. Take that and a pack of bobby pins we used to secure the middle and I was in flower heaven. I guess we didn’t get out much because the bright multi color tissue paper flowers they sold in the gift shops at Opryland Amusement Park were a major treat. They came attached to a long florist wire stem. Growing up in Alabama, I recall making a trip on the church bus to Nashville to visit Opryland, and bringing some these home with me.
