Come to think of it, I don't even remember what an elm looks like. How sad.

But, one tree i'll never miss is that gum-ball tree.

Drive-In Movies    bringing home popped popcorn and a slew of junk food.... It signaled the real beginning of summertime!

Time to play.  The endless possibilities of looking forward--now all I have is looking back.  Life was so much simpler.  You had to take care of what you bought because it WAS BUILT TO LAST.  The sense of wonder. Just too much to say here!

I would have to say the one thing I miss dearly was never getting to meet and know my twin bother Bill. My mom had twin boys Joe and Bill they where both hit by a drunk driver as they where walking home. They both where 16 years old at that time Joe was in the hospital for a long time and it killed Bill instantly. I was about very young so I don't remember his face or growing up with him. I just picture what it would be like to have both bothers that where identical to live with and play with.

Gets an "AMEN" from me! Playing kick the can and once the street lights came on that was our curfew! Getting the Italian ice from the musical truck was also a welcomes pleasure! Yes...it was a simpler time and I MISS those days!

I miss the feeling I got walking home from the last day of school and dreaming of the seemingly endless possibilities of summer.

It's not the technology that's overwhelming. What's overwhelming is that it's not made to last. It's designed to make them money, and you broke. I miss simplicity too. but the right kind & quality of tech can automate the things you don't want to mess with. And longevity means you don't have to keep doing it over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over &.......................................................................................................
