SHARING MY WORLD – Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your World – June 4, 2018

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

I don’t actually remember anything from childhood. I didn’t have anything special in the way of clothing. It looks just like everyone else’s clothing. Shorts. Shirts. Sneakers.

1952 – Typical childhood clothing. Not memorable

1953 – More memorable clothing

My mother made most of my clothing, so it probably was nice, but it certainly didn’t form much in the way of memories. I remember clothing from when I was a young woman, though … well … at least a few things.

Regardless of your physical fitness, coördination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Trapeze artist. I want to be a flyer!

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

A passenger, absolutely. I used to like driving alone. I never enjoyed having other people commenting on my driving.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

What happened last week? Was then when I got hacked? Or when we went to UMass Memorial? That’s when we got the new router, right?

Coming and going

I don’t remember anything. It has been wild and crazy and I don’t know what happened, except I must have come out of it okay, because … hey … here I am.

  1. My mom made a lot of my clothes. I always felt like the poor little girl. She did eventually get better at sewing. So babysitting money went to buying clothes when I was old enough. Thanks for sharing Marilyn.


  2. When I was about 7 years old, my aunt made me this cowgirl shirt with all sorts of fringes and embroidery, it was lovely. My mother said it was too big for me so she gave it to my cousin. I realize now she did this to repay my cousin’s mother who was always giving me lovely hand me downs.

    • Clothing from past: Hmmnn. Not those damn buckle galoshes. How ’bout the chinos with the buckle in the back? White Bucks? I wanted a leather motorcycle jacket like the one Brando wore in “The Wild One”. Mom said no. Ditto “no” on pegged pants. Gee whiz , Mom, all the other guys have ’em.

      Athletic aspiration: Center Fielder, Brooklyn Dodgers, Ebbets Field. Betcha I could hit the ball over the “Robert Hall” Clothing sign on the rightfield wall and onto Bedford Avenue. I had “Duke” Snider’s sweet swing copied perfectly. I still can hear Vin Scully calling my “walk-off” home run. ‘Armstrong gets the fast ball, Solid with his sweet swing. There it goes, deep into the Brooklyn Night. Garry sends the faithful home smiling. There’s joy in Flatbush tonight’.
