My Second Childhood

As a kid, I didn't have any real talents.  I don't have many now, but then I don't know what I did all day.  We didn't have electronics and we didn't watch TV all day.  I guess we played outside.  Some kids can sing, dance, or are excellent in sports, but the only things I did well were the hula hoop and finding four leaf clovers.  Oh yes, and I could do the mash potato to Dee Dee Sharp in the basement of my house.  You younger people won't know what the mash potato is so you will have to google it.  Or see it here on youtube

They say as you grow old you revert back to your childhood.  I think it has happened to me.  I now do the hula hoop for exercise.

My daughter gave me a hula hoop for Christmas and I can still do it.
Then today I went outside to water my plants and this is what I found, two four leaf clovers.  Former Mayor of Stoughton Wisconsin, Helen Johnson could find them too.  She had hundreds under the glass on her office desk.  I hadn't found so many in recent years, so I was happy finding these today.  Finally I have entered my second childhood.
