    When you were 10 years old, what was your favorite past time?

    I love remembering bits and pieces of my childhood!  Us neighborhood kids would get together on those hot summer days and play childhood games to past the time.  My favorite was when we played red light, green light!  What was your favorite past time?

    Reading comic books. I started collecting them seriously in 1980 when I was ten years old. Back then they only cost 40 cents! Ahhh, the good old days.

    I enjoyed swinging!  I absolutely loved the freedom I felt as I would swing as high as possible.  Oh the joys of childhood!  Thanks for this question that prompted some wonderful reminiscing for me!

    Watching television, no matter what was on at the time. Actually, because the muscles in my left eye were week, my eye doctor suggested it as a way to help pull the eye to a central focal point and strengthen the muscle. It got my eye pointed more or less in the right direction, but it is questionable if it helped my vision or not.

    Barbies. We had a whole room in the basement just for barbie stuff. I liked outside too. & In the winter, I loved plaing in the snow. I like crafts and writing too.

    Texas Hold 'Em Poker. Yup, believe it or not. A drunk adult showed me how to play, and I eventually went on to play against other drunks within his community. I started playing for money and won. My biggest pot was $100.
    That's a true story, a very sad true story.

    Riding bikes with my friends, pretending that we were characters from "Lost in Space" and we were riding  in our space pods.  Of course, I was always Penny.  Unfortunately, the evil aliens usually caught me unless I was hitching I ride in Will's pod (sitting on the boy bar -- ouch!).

    backporchstories......HA!  I don't even remember being 10 years old, much less what I liked to do!!!   My memories of childhood are sketchy.  Some are clear, other are gone from my mind....others never took hold to begin with.  I know what's important to remember.  I had great, hard working and loving parents......a sister who was my lifetime best friend.....lived in a wonderful small town, had lots of friends and went to the best schools.   
    To wish for anything more than this would be totally foolish and selfish of me.....Sounds like you had a fun childhood!

    My favorite past times is the same now as it was then, reading! I have loved to read ever since I can remember and that hasn't changed.

    I loved to listen to the radio at night and see how many radio stations from other states I could hear.  I would keep a journal of the ones that were the farthest away.  All I had was a little transistor radio but it worked great.  I didn't know that years later I would actually work at a radio station and be "on the air"!

    10 years old? I remember coming home from school every day and fixing myself up a PeanutButter and Jelly sangwich. That was my routine! Besides that, I was heavily into basketball, listening to music, and watching television. And you know what? This question just brought back a wonderful memory! When I was around the ages of 10-12 I used to grab my mothers' digital camera, and wander around our big backyard (we were living in a rural area at the time). With the camera in hand, I'd stalk the groundhog who was living near our garden. I'd sit by his hole, waiting for him to come out! I eventually managed to snap a few pictures of it, only from a far distance. That was great fun wink and thank you for asking this wonderful question!

    When I was ten I had just watched my first Summer Olympic Games and thus spent the better part of that summer being completely committed to ‘training’ for the Olympics.  I remember being in such awe of those athletes that I went about making my backyard into the best training facility that random odds and ends from my garage could muster.  I found a couple of old tires that I would do a foot drill through, I found some old sawhorses that I used as hurdles, I found a long pole and placed one end in our tree and the other end on the top of our fence and I then used it to practice pull ups.  If ever there was such a thing as backyard Olympics, I would have been so ready.

    Reading. That certainly hasn't changed so far. My favorite past time is sitting in my comfy chair in a pair of pj's with a hot cup of tea and my kindle.
