I have a feeling there were more swings in the 1950's than there are today. More playgrounds had them and people had more time to use them. When I run across a swing today, it always feels like I'm stepping back in time.
This whole "celebrating the fifties" list has inspired me to do things I might not do otherwise. But rarely do I pass up a swing without stopping for a little fun. All 3 of these swings were surprises in the last 6 months. The tire swing was along the banks of Cypress Creek in Comfort, Texas. The white swing was at a pier side restaurant in Aruba. The red swing was hanging from the most lovely tree near the Menil Art Museum in Houston.
When I spot a swing, I feel like it's my lucky day!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
