Bringing Back the Impromptu Block Party

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Today's Livestyle Blog by Sheiili Mosteller

reminded me of the impromptu block parties that used to happen around my house in the late fifties. My dad's homemade stilts, a pogo stick, hula hoops, jump ropes, street skates, and bikes were favorites with kids and adults of all ages. There never was an invitation. Just a few kids playing outside and soon the place would be jumpin, literally!!

The "toys" that Shelli describes just might get everyone out from their video and computer screens and outside having FUN together!! And if no one shows up, just put on a pair of those Schwings and knock on a few doors. I bet you'll soon have a crowd Hooping and . . .

    If life ever brings me the opportunity to move to Florida or NC, I will definitely strive to find a place in your neighborhood -- and you could definitely count me in your block parties!!
