Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. There isn't a right or wrong answer to this question as everyone has different opinions on any given issue.

So here's this weeks question: Who was your best childhood friend?
Toots (Terri Hurliman). We were attached at the hip and had tons of fun together. We even took her parents car out for a spin one night when I spent the night at her house. How we didn't get caught is beyond me, but we were grateful that we got away with one of many teenage things we did and probably shouldn't have done.

  1. Besides my SisterDears? Well, her name is Patty Nonni. She lived caddycorner across the street, right on the ocean overlooking Boston Harbor, across from Logan Airport. We were entirely different in a=nearly every way imaginable. I was the oldest of 8 and she was an only child. She had more clothes, shoes, toy, etc... than all of us put together. She also had a little poodle names Pierre. It always cracked me up how an Italian family could get a French Poodle and name him Pierre. Why not Paulo?

    I was insanely jealous of her Barbi doll collection. She had absolutely everything!

    I had a Midge and 2 or 3 outfits and all of her shoes went MIA. Brothers... Oy.

    Her Aunt took us in Boston to the Garden for our very first Rock Concert... The Monkees! Woohoo!

    Oh, that was a fun one! Have a lovely day hon. Big hugs xoxo

  2. Without question, Tim. We don't communicate much these days, but we're still in touch after about 48 years.

  4. Oh lawd, I had so many friends. One I remember taught me that I wouldn't be struck down with lightning if I cussed LOL! She's now a writer based out of Miami. I still keep in touch with her every now and then. We learned so much from each other. What is funny is that oftentimes I dream that as an adult, I purchased their family home.

    They had this junk food drawer growing up and I still dream about that drawer!

  6. Who can remember back that far. I had a good friend, Tommy that lived across the street. He had a bad foot and had to be in a wheel chair so we had to play things that he could do.

  7. Ricky Delgado. He took the blame for something I was partially responsible for and went to Juvy for a week. He never ratted me out. I've been searching for him these past twenty years.

  8. Early child hood army brat, never stayed anywhere long enough to make friends. Later childhood, no one liked me because I didn't care for pop-culture, even then. I was kind of an outcast, so my friends were my books.

  9. Bharath was my teenage friend. He was very aggressive. His English was very good and I learnt to speak fast in English with his help. ( My mother tongue is Tamil, a south Indian language.)

  11. Donna is the name of my best childhood friend, she is our neighbor and she still live in the same place where we both grew up, so when I get to go home in our province once in a while I still see her and we do a lot of catching up and most of the time we talk about the many funny stuff we did during our childhood :)

  13. This is kind of a tough one as being an Air Force brat, I moved basically every two years and was constantly making new friends along the way. When I was in Connecticut, as was often the case when my Dad was being shipped overseas, then my best friend was always my cousin Diana who is about nine months older than me. At the end of my school years, I had a couple really good friends that I got into all sorts of shenanigans with; we've stayed in touch but we've certainly calmed down a lot!

  15. I guess that would be the girl who lived right behind our house. Sadly we lost touch after high school. I think she lives in Arizona somewhere now

  16. Her name then was Vicky Ridinger. She was my best friend and next door neighbor. We were like 2 peas in a pod from age 6 to about age 17 when she snuck off and married her boyfriend Sam. That changed everything.

  17. My childhood friend Linda, who lived down the street from me. We used to hang out and listen to Beatles 45s and play Mad Libs.

    Haven't seen her since our twenty high school reunion.

  19. The girl in the valley was my first best friend. We had meetings in secret places.

    During high school it was a fellow that was a grade below me. I would pick him up in the mornings for school in Dad's pickup that I drove. Other times he had his dad's car for riding around (cruising).

  22. There were a few... Mr T, Shugs, and Mundie, and to this very day we are still in contact...

  23. The summer that I turned 60, I felt the need to contact some people who had meant a lot to me along the way; and, with whom, I had lost contact. I was so fortunate to find that special person who always seem to accept me for being me... and today, we still consider each other best of friends.

  24. Kelly and I were friends from 8th grade. We stayed in touch up until about 15 years ago. We had some great times and teen boys of the sixties.
