Yes, scorpio, we did have a magical childhood. I believe that the best present our parents ever gave us was their eternal optomisim and childlike dreams. Oh, there have been Christmas's that were a little bare, lonely, and not quite "up to snuff" as our Dad would say, but the love they gave and wishes that they had for our futures, more than made up for lack of wrapped gifts. As we grew up....or should I say, "matured" (we don't ever wanna grow up), these memories have become like golden threads joining my sister and me to each other and our parents long passed.
Sharing some of these "magical" memories with all of our Pip friends is a blessing. Thankyou all for allowing us to sort of "steal" this thread. Please, please join in with your memories as well. Cheers!
