I Remember the Slumber Parties
by Shirley Scherrer Nye
 
My house was always the one for slumber parties because my parents were willing to let me do it.  We had a two story house so they slept upstairs while we gals (usually about 20) were all over the floor downstairs.
 
The boys would show up early in the evening and dad would sometimes "entertain" them with conversation and/or jokes.  When it was time to go, however, there was not much backtalk ... dad was 6'4" and rather imposing. 
 
The one memory I have regarding slumber parties is when we gals walked down Swope Parkway in our babydoll PJ's up to the boat pond near the high school.  My house was a half block in off Swope Parkway at 62nd so it wasn't far.  I don't think anyone actually got in the water as we were afraid the police would catch us.  I doubt my folks even knew we did that ... my dad would have blown his top! 
 
That is certainly mild compared to what kids do today but we thought we were pretty daring!
