Gatherings…when said we were bored and had nothing to do, our grandparents would give all the kids their very own salt shakers…something of our very own…got us really excited.
We were then told to “Chase birds, and when we got close, shake salt on the birds tails. Once when we got enough salt on them, they would be weighed down and couldn’t fly…and that’s when we could catch them”.
Sounded good to us, and kept us busy at nearly every family gathering.
Never caught a bird, but wasn’t bored either, until I caught on, when I was 19.
