Today I went into the Dollar store. That brings a memory in itself. My favorite store used to be the five and dime store in downtown Urbana. Today the store was full of Easter candy that made me feel like a longing kid.
My mother used to make me and my siblings each our own individual Easter basket. It usually had a variety of hand picked treats. I still love those hollow chocolate rabbits that have a name on the box like "Binky" with candy eyes.
And speaking of the five and dime store, they would have baby chicks and ducks for sale right on the counter in the middle of the store.
What favorite memories do you have? Please share them in your comments. I would love to hear from you.
