Peanut Scramble: Celebrating My 6 Year Blog Anniversary With a Sunday Snap!


Shady Dell Music & Memories

is 6 years old today!

To celebrate I am carrying on

the tradition of my dear friend

Thisisme at Southhamsdarling

and posting a Sunday Snap.

I realize I am violating the Sunday Snaps rules
by including text, but I wanted to explain what
you are seeing in the picture below. Taken in
the summer of 1952, it shows two year old
Shady Del Knight (standing right rear) and five
of my cousins participating in a peanut scramble.

Similar to an Easter egg hunt, a peanut scramble was a game
for children.  Peanuts were scattered on the ground across a
small area and kids scrambled to gather them.  I suppose the
winner, the kid who collected the most goober peas, won a
prize, probably more of the same. I remember taking part
in peanut scrambles at my church's Sunday school picnics
held in the summertime at White Oaks Park ("The Oaks").
This picture, however, was taken at a family reunion.

Did you ever participate in a peanut scramble?
