如果说小时候玩过的什么最好玩,,,那当然是弹球了(玻璃球)。小学时曾经非常痴迷,甚至课间短短的十五分钟时间都是在玩弹球中度过的。哈哈

有一次我甚至为了弹球闯了大祸。那时妈妈经常和同事们在闲暇时间玩跳棋,而我对跳棋棋盘上的弹子“偷窥”了很长时间了。有一天终于忍不住“偷”了五六个弹球拿去和狐朋狗友们在外面玩,,,没想到我输了个精光。后来妈妈问我说跳棋少了弹子,问我知不知道去向,我直摇头说不知道,妈妈也就没有再追究。至今这事每次提起我都觉得很愧对妈妈,不过妈妈每次都是一笑而过。鼓掌

妈妈出身于宝鸡的农村,解放时因为外公家有过地雇过短工而被评为地主成分。她高中是在宝鸡市的一个重点中学上的,在班上学习非常优秀却因为身份原因未能上大学,成为她一生的遗憾。但她是个自强不息的姑娘,无论干什么事都非常出色认真!后来她凭着自己的努力和自学当上了县中的化学老师!还教过我初中一个学期的化学课呢!加油

说到水果,我们那时候根本就没见过芒果(只见过芒果牌香烟)嘻嘻,香蕉也只是宝鸡市才有。有一次在市里逛的时候小姨给我买了一根香蕉(太贵了),我高兴滴要命!由于太兴奋,剥好的香蕉掉在了刚刚下过雨的泥地上,吃都没吃到,太可惜了!不过宝鸡农村在冬天也有自己好吃的水果,,,那就是火红的小柿子!又水灵又好吃,可惜现在吃不到了!微笑

 

好了,回到这首歌来,大家来看看词作者Tom Jones 是怎么说这首歌的:

But Why did they pick September? why not November?

"I guess I felt that September is a time of passage from the romanticism of youth to realism. One moves from the over-statement of summer to the clarity of winter. I wouldn't be a youthful, romantic person again for anything in the whole wide world."

Oh, Tom.

"Try to Remember" still has a remarkable way of capturing a sense of sadness, lost innocence and rue. Its obliqueness adds dignity; its sweetness suggests a certain guilelessness; and its directness goes right to the heart.

On this day of all days, it offers a little balm. And, in its last two words (which are repeated like an echo), even a note of hope:

Deep in December it's nice to remember

the fire of September that made us mellow

Deep in December our hearts should remember

And follow . . . follow . . . follow . . . follow . . .

 

Try to remember
Try to remember the kind of September, 
When life was slow and oh so mellow. 
Try to remember the kind of September, 
When grass was green and grain was yellow. 
 
Try to remember the kind of September, 
When you were a tender and callow fellow. 
Try to remember, and if you remember, 
Then follow (follow) follow (follow) follow
 
Try to remember when life was so tender, 
That no one wept except the willow, 
Try to remember when life was so tender, 
That dreams were kept beside your pillow. 
 
Try to remember when life was so tender, 
That love was an ember about to billow, 
Try to remember, and if you remember, 
Then follow (follow) follow 

(Follow, deep in December it's nice to remember, 
Although you know the snow will follow. 
Deep in December it's nice to remember, 
Without a hurt the heart is hollow.) 
 
Deep in December it's nice to remember, 
The fire of September that made us mellow. 
Deep in December our heart's should remember, 
And follow (follow) follow (follow) follow
