Week 9: Sounds

I am re-posting some of my old blog posts to keep the history of my blog alive. This post is from the 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History blogging prompts series.

This post appeared originally on my blog on Feb 27, 2011.

Week 9: Sounds.  Describe any sounds that take you back to your childhood. These could be familiar songs, jingles, children playing, or something entirely different.

Sounds is kind of a tough one for me but here is my entry.    Some of the sounds I remember are the sounds of music and TV shows.  There is the sound of the bionic man and woman from their TV shows!

The music of Elvis and the great Country Stars of the 1970s.   The theme from Cheers.  The meows of our cats as we lived through the years.

The sound of birds on an early spring morning as I walking to school.  The sound of water on the lake as we were fishing or camping.  The sound of the twigs crackling in the campfire.

The sound of my brother learning to play the saxophone in junior high.

The music that plays in the background of Pac-Man and other video games.

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants.
