As you can see a girl learned early to do so called woman's work . Wash clothes , iron, take care of baby dolls and a little time out to ride the horse . Great memories but glad womens goals as little girls are more career minded now :-) How about the Old TV :-) This is a one yr olds Christmas . The only child . Love them heavy duty white shoes too .She grew up to hate housework and had a professional career despite it all .

    Pop_abides . It didn't last long soon sisters came along and then there was 4 . I was alone for 2 yrs :-)
    Mcgarrett50 -I never rode horse's I tried on a real one a time or 2 but was scared on a wild ride by one and that was it for me :-) Although they did try to get me on horse at that age a huge plow horse ! You had a great life and a stay at home Mom is needed again in this world !

    I don't know how you survived all those wicked dangerous toys, especially that horse and washing machine! Thank god for the consumer protection agency. My parents tried doing me in with same type of toys.

    rocker -sd I do wonder how we all lived pre consumer protection but we did . What about the hot iron .I used that before 2yrs old . Those were good days when life was simple and I wouldn't want to have grown up in other decade .

    I heard a comedian say that back in the day the stupid ones didn't make it. There was kind of form of natural selection going on... He went on to say that that's what's wrong with the world today... All these regulations are letting the stupid ones live!

    I am glad I was smart enough to survive then toolate2 if that was case :-)
