Family Picnic: a reblog

I’m feeling a bit nostalgic today, what with teddy bears picnics and Bro’s birthday. This post came to mind, and was typical of family get togethers of yesteryear. I remember days when shoes were christened by dogs, which was better than being chewed I suppose, little boys running into the woods with toilet paper streaming after them, punch ups over sweets (and that was the adults lol) so much hilarity and laughter which would give the TV Waltons a run for the money on family life.
We’re all older now, Sis and I in our 60s, both brothers in their 70s and sadly Mum and Dad are no longer with us, but the memories are as fresh today as if it were only yesterday.
On a sunny day like this, picnics may well have been in the offing.


My previous post was in response to Charli’s challenge this week and I was limited to 99 words.
I thought I’d do a more in-depth post about our family picnics as they were so much fun, and with Summer just around the corner (hopefully), happy memories as well!
I’m one of four, but all of us are on our second marriages and in two cases my parents inherited grandchildren by default. All were treated as members of the family, no-one was an outsider, and any foster kids in my care were also made welcome.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
