      I’g glad you got it…I realise that people in classrooms these days would not know what I was referring too 😉

      • Sunshine says:

        Actually, it’s better with dry erase boards these days…except the odor of the markers can be awful. Oh well…it’s that or a lung full of chalk dust! 😊

  4. The young are missing out on by not listening to the ancient voices.

  5. Ah chalk… how many use that nowadays.. ?.

      My teenage daughter has painted one of her walls with blackboard paint and draws on it. …but true, you don’t see it around as much.

    Actually, children are very receptive to things extraordinary but are usually nixed/silenced by adults when they refer to such things as apparitions or voices. They do have heightened senses and I bet they hear a lot that they never tell because of reactions to the first time they shared. Just sayin.

    So true but it depends. I must be an odd soul as I have always like old people (which is good because I am getting older every day as we all are). My favorite person growing up was my grandmother who lived with us most of the time I was growing up. I spent a lot of time listening to her stories.

    Woooooah….disturbingly true!
