Lately there has been a lot of trailer talk in the blogs. Have you seen this post? It really has me swooning. This is a whole blog about a vintage travel trailer. And don't forget Suzanne and her road trip. Anyway it all has me thinking about the trailer we had when I was little. We probably got it in 1959-ish, my sister was born in early 1960 and she's not in these early photos, and my little brother was born in 1958 and he's there in the stroller. That's me lollygagging back there, perfecting the slouch at 5. We pulled that little trailer around for years when we were small, but probably by the end of the 60's it was retired and eventually sold. My mom and I were talking about it this past weekend. The trailer was always packed with its own dishes, and equipment, all you needed to add was a block of ice for the fridge and some food. Dad would call home telling us what time to be ready and off we'd go.
Sometimes at antique stores I see the old dishes like we had in the trailer. I think they were originally a cereal give-away if I'm not mistaken. I really need to grab one of those cups to have my coffee in. You know.. just for the memory.
Ok, enough lollygagging, I better get a move on. Have a wonderful day peoples! xo
