Life: Now and Then
Those were wonderful carefree days ... popsicle sticks included. What a refreshing Magpie!!
Superb! Mothers always the spoilsports! Those were the days!Anna :o]
How well I remember the days of popsicle sticks and curbs.
We were to poor to have popsicle sticks but we had homemade bows and arrows and lances made from saplings. Moms were often on the edge of heart failure.
lol, it's all fun and games until someone puts out an eye!
I like how you wove the shield prompt into a present day's child's world of imagination, rather than delving into a historical past.
I never had a pop-sickle-spent childhood. But my mother always intervened, yes, as mothers always do, confiscating my forages from the backyard :) well-lived.
Short and to the point. I loved the ending!
Hahaha. I love it.Oh Moms.
