Whimsical Wednesday # 162

Welcome back to Whimsical Wednesday!

The day for your googled giggle that gets you over the hump that is Wednesday and sliding down into the weekend.

Calvin and Hobbes. 

Don't put away your childish things. Save them for your child.


  1. Or your inner child.

  2. Seeing I don't have a child; and seeing I'm still a child, I keep them for me.

  3. I am with Delores and Lee. My childish things still have a (very big) place in my world.

  4. What do you mean save them for your child, I still read the one's at my place my children left them here they grew out of them I didn't.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. I have nothing (good) left from my childhood.
    But, I do have a heart and head full of fantastic fairytales and fables from worlds found in books of long ago.
    I like to recount stories, it's in my European blood, so I hope my (future) grand child/ren will enjoy them...

    (Sorry, spelling error in my deleted comment)

  7. The childish things are still in my memory which makes it easy to play Barbies and board games with my gr-daughters.

  8. Delores; my inner child is well satisfied with the stuffed chimpanzees and gorillas I have. Toys of course. I never had stuffed toys as a child, they were my sister's.

    Lee; of course you do, it's good to still enjoy the things that brought you your first happiness.

    Elephant's Child; here too, my childish habits rule. Reading, colouring, redesigning house plans I find in newspapers and magazines.

    Merle; and eventually your grandchildren will enjoy them in their turn.

    Vicki; spelling errors mostly go unnoticed here. I like the idea of your head and heart filled with fairytales and fables. You'll be a great fireside storyteller when your grandchildren come to sleep at Grandma's place one day. Like the story teller of long ago, who travelled from town to town with his tales.

  9. Ah, this comes into conflict with my desire to declutter! But I am keeping favorite books and the sweaters my grandmother knitted. Now I want them to go to my grandchildren. :-)
