Loved it. I bet you knew it was right, even as you wrote it.

Good insight, Floots. At least, it certainly felt right. Sometimes that happens.

Lovely! I feel a stream-of-conscious nostalgia when reading this. Was it the same when you wrote it/experienced it? Or different?

Came in through BE, and glad I did. Suddenly it gave a whole new frame of reference for all those old photos I cart around.

Cin: Glad you dropped in, and thanks for your comment. But does this mean that some day you'll blame me for all those pictures cluttering the attic?:)
