Hi, readers! Today I’ve got author Hildie McQueen here to chat with us. Here’s what I asked her:
Tell us a little about the neighborhood where you grew up.
* * *
The neighborhood where I grew up in was in South San Diego, just a few miles from the Mexican border, where I was born.
What I loved the best about growing up in the area were the many kids my age in my neighborhood. We used to play roller-derby, baseball and run around in an empty field acting out parts of movies we’d just watched. In the late spring, we would catch tadpoles and bring them home in jars. Moms would turn them free when they turned into frogs. I wonder how they dealt with so many of the ugly little creatures in the house.
Another great thing about growing up in South San Diego was that once I was a teenager, my sisters and I could take the city bus to the border and hang out with our cousins in Mexico. We had house parties, went to the movies and in Mexico the nightclubs would open in the afternoons just for teens. They didn’t serve alcohol, but we felt grown up dancing to the disco beats with all the lights effects.
Now, your turn. Tell us a little about the neighborhood where YOU grew up.
