Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1) It's summertime in the Northern hemisphere, and time for summer vacations for many people.
2) Tell us about a memorable summer vacation when you were a child. What are your memories of summer vacations with your family? Did you travel? How? Did you visit extended family? Who?
Well I don't remember the first vacation my parents took my sister and me, don't even know where they went. I was 2 and my sister was 4. She sat in the back seat reading comic books, when she finished with a page she tore it off and threw it out the window.
We did not take many vacations when I was young, pop only got a week vacation so we never went far. In 1962 we all went to the Seattle Worlds Fair. I have done 18 blog posts on the Seattle Worlds Fair mostly on items from the scrapbook my mom kept, but several photos I took while we were at the fair. We had a neighbor from Spokane that had moved to Snohomish County a few years before the fair so we stayed with them while we were there. Later on my parents bought a travel trailer and we went on several vacations, Yellowstone, Glacier Park, Crater Lake, etc., and many times to the coast at Ocean Shores,

1) It's Father's Day in the USA on Sunday, so let's talk about our fathers.
2) What did your father really like to do in his work or spare time? Did he have hobbies, or a workshop, or did he like sports, or reading, or watching TV?
2) My father had a workshop in the garage, and he liked working on almost anything mechanical, lawn mowers, cars, motors, pumps, etc. He was not a real sports fan but would watch baseball and football if he was not busy in his workshop. He loved reading, and most of his resting time he spent reading, books, magazines, and of course the newspaper. He did watch TV while reading, but except for the news he was not a real big fan of any TV program.
