This season was the first of its kind that I found myself without papers to stress over or exams to press for. My dearest colleague and right-hand man, Manny, suggested that I use my new leisure experience to find fun stuff to pass the time. My inner blogger beckons, however… I had mission to find what activities people used to participate in during the solstice season, and these are my findings and what makes them classics.
In this series, Manny and I will report on antiquated funzies ranging from hobbyist herbal gardening, trying homemade recipes for ice cream and oddly-shaped jello desserts with the help of our friends at InTheVintageKitchen, picnicking (of course), attempting a game of croquet (did I even spell that right?), go boating, test out an arcade, try recently-legalized fireworks, and even work with Clicks, the RRBlog’s Kodak box camera. Whatever vintage pastime we can find will end up on our list.
With each new experience, we will do our best to document and discuss for you darlings. If you have a favorite memory from wayback that you’d like us to try out, post it on our facebook page at Facebook.com/retrorevivalist or in the comments section below! Be sure to tell your friends all about us!
