Holy * * *, Den do you remember hopping cars on Bristol st next to the mackley it would ice up real nice you could ride a couple blocks or how bout bombing the P bus and cars with snowballs. People would stop and howler and we would bomb them somemore! It was great we were nuts, or how about how the nut cracker would freeze up right down the middle and you could slid down the ice standing up no sled required or on the side of the new school at H.I. next to bristol st that would ice up in a sheet of ice the Nunns would have a fit because would and run and slid on the ice. We had alot of fun! Merry Cristmas and happy New years Mike Creedon and Family.

Thats awsome donna, we called them goulashes {spelling},. we put them over our shoes to walk to school or play outside, ya fred we would go down the creek and go icebergin, it was just one or two on there own icberg, you broke the ice around you so you can float down the creek, one year a bunch of us fell off and by the time we got out of the water and too the ladder to climb up we almost froze solid i mean you almost could not walk, we made to richie bakers house just in time, he lived 4223 o street, and dried them there, lol...P.S. in the wise words of jimmy vogleman, he said dennis if someone wrote a book about us no one would believe you...and its so true. peace.

How many of you remember putting baseball cards on bike wheels to get those effects, or making go-carts with old milk crates and roller skates? How about playing bottle caps or bells-out,(my favorite), stick ball, flying kites at Juniata Park, or playing in the old manufacturing plant that sat off of Castor and Erie ave.? Amazing we didn't kill ourselves while exploring those old places! Attempting to walk on the Juniata creek when it froze up,(crazy).
Keep the memories going...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Christmas were just great growing up!!!!!! Dennis --I'm so glad to hear you too had to deal with the blinding 8mm camera. Surprised we all didnt need glasses back then. Caroling, exchanging cookies with the neighbors, skating on Pike street due to the ice storms, the great snowball fights and going home frozen, the buckle up rubber boots lol, and going down the nut cracker and having John Kane jump on top of you LOL now that was a treat.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL AND HOPE THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF CHRISTMAS PAST KEEP A SPECIAL SMILE IN YOUR HEARTS !!!!!!!
Christmas Days were the greatest in our home with all of my brothers friends stopping by and taking our toys from us younger ones. I wouldnt trade those days for all the money in the world.

Boys, I am pretty sure that the comments you made are not what Carolan had in mind.LOL. Miss visiting everybody, just walking from one house to the next and visiting. We are creating new traditions for our children, but they will never truly understand what it was like to grow up the way we did. Sure do miss the good old days. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

I still have some decorations my grandparents bought at Herman Klein's Hardware on Hunting Park Avenue in 1960. The lighted candles still work.
