Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

Through most of the decade, I was a Legos freak. I loved Legos, big time. I used to build houses too, but they never came out as nice as the one pictured. The trees against the house in the above pic were introduced just about the time I outgrew Legos. And the original Lego people were big and clumsy.

As I mentioned in a previous post, my great grandfather built a house in Chatham, Massachusetts. It was a Cape style house. In one of the upstairs bedrooms, the closet door opened up into a narrow 5-foot long hallway. At the end of that hallway was a 3-foot high door. That door opened up into a 6 x 6 room that had a small chair and a lamp. My cousin used to read in that little room, but I never got near it. To this day it still creeps me out.

When I was a kid, I loved hanging out in the woods. Unfortunately, none of the other kids in my neighborhood did. And it's no fun hanging out in the woods by yourself. But the times I did spend in the woods were the best.
