Hybrids aren't just for cars....................
« on: September 16, 2012, 01:05:00 pm »
I was feeling a tad nostalgic and when happens I get windy. I know this shocks you.....SO I was thinking about my house in PA and how we were in the middle of things, so even though I bored my kids to death with the story, I decided in case they'd ever forget I decided to make a page about it. So when I get windy, well enter HYBRIDS. And this was done in as a WORD.DOC - typing and pictures - nothing scary about that. I then  printed it all out on 8.5x11 cardstock. I added the title, some primas and stamping. Called it a day.



SO YOUR CHALLENGE - SHOW ME YOUR HYBRID!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!

journaling: We lived in rural Williams Township, my Aunt across the field had a Hellertown address, while we had an Easton address. We called long distance. We all went to the same high school, in Wilson Borough. Go figure. Since I had grandparents in both little towns, we hung out in each.

I do admit that I liked Hellertown the best. My grandparents lived in a location where you could walk anywhere in the city, therefore there was a lot more to do. The neighbors had kids my age and we hung out. We hung out at the community pool for days on end (not good for my because I canít tell how burned I would get and the agony that it would be (no a/c in those days). We hung out behind the school where they had all kinds of games to play and crafts to make.

Living rural and going to school in the borough made after school life interesting. The late bus was the only way to get home (unless picked up - tough with a one car family and dad did shift work) and a LONG walk home. After dark in the winter which mostly it was winter lol.

Then of course there were all the kids in the hood in rural Williams Township. We had a blast. We rode our bikes, hung out at each otherís houses, played pump pump tag (and if I have to explain....), camped out mixing up the genders with no thought of sex (seriously) in the same tent. Rode sleds in the winter, ice skated on the frozen ponds. We played ice hockey - I was the goalie ONLY because I was the only one who couldnít skate and swing the stick at the same time. Snort.

Easton was fun, we had cousins there and hung out. My Uncle Dave who was  only ten years older had friends who were very cool to be seen with. The best part in the summer was sitting on the front porch and chatting with all the neighbors doing the same.

Grocery and clothes shopping was mostly done in Easton, Bethlehem.
Hospitals were located in Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown.
Schools were in Easton, Hellertown, Wilson Borough.
