Trees...and gum.....I'm rambling again...


the nice thing about living on a old street...
is you have old trees...


I enjoy looking at trees...
I'm not good on the names of them...
except the basic trees...

and when you have trees...
you have more birds...squirrels...critters...

so you know that means more photos....
more stories to tell....
do you like chewing gum?
are you a sugar free fan?
do you like regular gum?
I tend to go for the regular gum....
Wrigleys in the green package...
Whatever happened to Wrigleys in the white package?
I never liked the wrigleys in the yellow package...
My Nana used to have all three in her purse....
Do you like cinnamon gum?
What the heck happened to bubble gum?
Don't you remember how it would last forever...
and all the big bubbles you could blow with it...

I love trees in a neighborhood and everywhere else. I also love Orbit Wintermint sugarless gum.

We lived on an old street in an old house (built 1912)...then we moved...NO TREES just a big ugly lot...and at our age I though man...we'll never have trees...that was 10 years ago...but the trees have come..and we have more birds now than we ever had right in town...And today..I just bought my granddaughter bubble gum that lasts for about 10 minutes... I always have gum..sugarless...
USA has or had that gum in a black and white package...I forget the name? okay I'm rambling...

Hmmm... i like plain ol' double-bubble chewing gum. That's what I chew when I really want to smack some...LOL. My grand-daughter is 2 now and around 18 mos. she started chewing gum. She loves and she doesn't swallow! I've never seen a baby chew gum like that. She gives it back when she is finished. It's funny.
Sometimes I get a hankerin' for a piece of Black Jack chewing gum. Ever had it? Blue package. The gum is licorice. Mmmmm... I love that.
Thanks for coming by my blog today.

I am a wrigley fan!!! I love all three flavors....I don't know what happened to the white one, it was great. Juicy fruit is just my all time favorite but currently I have two packs of spearment!

OK... do you have a memory of a little tune... About gum? -chuckle- If you do, you sing it to Little Britches, I betcha'.

Tweekle-Dee-Dee and Tweekle-Dee-Dum,
Went out together to buy some gum.

Said Tweekle-Dee-Dee to Tweekle-Dee-Dum,
I prefer Spearmint Gum.

Said Tweekle-Dee-Dum to Tweekle-Dee-Dee,
Juicy Fruit appeals to me.

:-)))))))))))))))))))

I always have sugarfree gum in my purse.

I'm a tree hugger from way back. I can't wait to have big ones in my yard again. Yay!

Dawn said...

Love places with big old trees...but I also like new houses;)
As for gum...the spiciest cinnamon gum I can find is my favorite:)

Great pictures! Yes, I love cinnamon gum. I also like Wrigley's double mint in the green package. The juicy fruit in the yellow package was always too sweet for me. I did chew the spearmint in the white package though years ago. I don't chew as much gum as I used to and right now I have a package of Extra peppermint flavored in my purse that hubby picked up for me. Hugs
