    Wow. That touched the depths of my soul. WHEW !!!

    Loved it. Thank you sooooooooo much.

    Happy to say I still don't use a key, 'cuz we never do have to lock our doors around here. Not even car doors. You can leave your purse in the car around here at the grovery store or Wallyworld.. it'll be there when you get back !

    I particularly liked the closing lines of that... so very true.

    Loved it-- Thanks! Made me sigh with nostalgia for a simpler, more innocent time... I emailed the link to the site to a number of people who'd also enjoy the walk down Memory Lane.

    Thanks! I remember a lot of those things from when I was a "kid"- ok, I'm 19, so I'm still pretty young I guess- I am lucky to have been a kid of the 80's and still experience a lot of that stuff! Thanks to my parents and my huge family, I guess. Fun times...

    I've got a great big grin on my face...yeah, I remember it well... I remember those blue speckled gum balls, if you got one, it was worth a nickle and you traded them in for other candy...I remember walking to town after supper,window shopping, with my Mama, Daddy and sister...wouldn't even try that now...
    I still look at the clouds...and my Mama taught me to look for patterns in wood doors, floor tiles...some were quite entertaining....
    I remember going to my Grandma's house on Sunday afternoon, Sunday dinner was still on the table and if we were hungry, we ate whatever we fear of food poisoning...but, personally, I went to the oven...there were biscuits in there...the best I have ever eaten !!!
    I remember sleeping with the windows open at night...
    I remember when school lunches cost $.25...Iceream was $.05...
    This has been great, Betts...I will continue my stoll down amnesia lane...Thanks for finding that site...
