52 Weeks of Sharing Our Memories - Skinned Knees

This post is part of the 52 Weeks of Writing our Memories by Lorine McGinnis Schulze at Olive Tree Genealogy who has challenged us to write our memories for our future generations.

I found this photo the other day while looking for something else. Seeing the colorful band aids on my knees reminded me of skinned knees. It seems I was always falling down or falling off my bike or something. I thought I would have permanent scars from all the skinned knees, but over time they disappeared. My mom would put mercurochrome on our cuts and scrapes. It didn't sting like merthiolate did! I loved these colorful band aids. It seems we also had some with cartoon characters on them.

Notice the colorful band aids on my knees.
