Black & White Wednesday: Childhood is Calling

If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good!
~ Dr. Seuss

Pickled raw mangoes and Indian gooseberries sold in wooden carts… Isn’t it one of the tastiest treats of childhood, or even adulthood for that matter! Oh this excitement and anticipation is killing me! I can’t wait to be child again and relive it with my Lil Dumpling :) It’s gonna be soon… very soon….
