Growing up during the ’50’s and ’60’s in a tiny rural western New York town, then becoming a military wife living in different states and England before returning “home”, has given me lots of conversation fodder I will share to inspire you to talk during your next family meal without the TV on or gadgets in hand; the subject may be derived from the “National Day of” calendar, a flash fiction challenge or anything else.
Yes, this is my family from a few years back, three sisters, two cousins, and “half” of a brother-in-law. The lamp hung over my parents dining room table for all my growing up years. Feels like home!
I would enjoy reading your memories on the daily subject in the comments section.
