WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN?

*** I have edited my blog badge code so it actually show the picture I have here when you put it on your site. If you have my badge on your site could you please change the code to the updated one. Thanks***
(No making fun of the hair do or the groovy 60's pants thank you very much. If you can't say something nice then don't say any thing at all at least make it funny)

Do you ever think of the people who have passed through your life only to go on to lives of their own? People who you may have played hide and seek with or kick the can on a warm summer's night? People who were growing up where you grew up?

I think of these people often. I think of the silly things we did. Apparently I told people that I was a witch. Uh huh. I had forgotten about that until this weekend. Why did I suddenly remember this? I made contact with a two sisters that I used to live near when I was about 11 or 12. I found her and her sister on Facebook. I guess I kind of scared her for a while. She was younger than me and I was pretty convincing. Sorry girl.

Once you start remembering some things bits and pieces start to flood forward. I started to remember lots of other names and details. It has been quite a trip down memory lane but you know what? You really can't go home again and quite honestly I don't want to. I want to see these women for the great people they have become today. How all of us from the same place in life have grown up and moved on and made such differences in our worlds.

This is an example of the world wide web at its best. Facilitating the reconnecting of people all around the world. Without Facebook I never would have visited with them. It has also connected me with distant relatives that I knew nothing about. So even though there is lots of  bad stuff on the net there is lots of good stuff too.  

I probably shouldn't even mention that one of my boys thought this picture of me was my brother. Uh huh. He actually thought that. C'mon people that side parted  flipped over hair was really cool. Really. If any of you have any doubts about how cool the 60's were here is a little clip for you to get you in the mood. This clip is so hysterical. Oh how I loved the 60's but you really can never go home again.

Okay, I don't know if it's funny, but seriously, those pants...I thought you had like both legs in braces. :)

Lori-I don't know where even one of my old neighborhood buddies is, but we spent lots of time out playing chase, catching lightening bugs, and climbing trees. I don't know that kids do much any more. I went back to look at the old neighborhood not long ago. Everything seemed so much smaller than I remembered. Now you've got me wanting to start checking Facebook :) Love the pants! :)

Lori,
I really enjoyed this post. I grew up in the 60's too and it's true, you can never go back. I remember playing "army" with my brother and his friends in Springfield, Oregon. We were 6 and 8 years old. I was the nurse of course.
Margaret Atwood wrote one of my favorite books about growing up: Cat's Eye. You telling your friend you were a witch kind of reminded me of that book for some reason!

The heck with funny. THOSE PANTS! Ha ha.

I reconnected with a old friend after almost forty years. We had both been fascinated with Harry Houdinii, and had agreed to form a pact like he did with his wife. Whomever died first would come back and make some form of contact with the other.

Well, at least apparently I was going to do my best to come back and haunt her. When I asked her if she remembered talking about this, she couldn't recall it at all.

So here I am, forty years later, going "ah do you remember saying that if we died.....?

She must have thought I was crazy, because I never heard from her again. I guess sometimes people drop out of your life for a reason. LOL.

Booooooooooo!

Hey...I think I had a pair of pants just like that! But I wore them in the 70s, yep pretty sure it was the 70s! LOL!

Leah said...

Lori I love the 70's so much - i wish I was 8 years younger than I am now in 1972. But I must admit, it will always be Led Zeppelin in my heart. Funny thing - I travelled with Robert Plant's son while I was in south east asia - laos specifically. I was going on and on about how much i loved LZ and we ran into his friends a few weeks later when they told us who his famous father was. Ironic and cool at the same time. I was and wasn't a groupie all at once :)

Love the pants!!

Maggie B said...

Amazing Youtube clip, I have no idea who those people were but I recognised those "moves"!

"So even though there is lots of bad stuff on the net there is lots of good stuff too."
I totally agree - and I think I had a similar pair of pants - thank goodness some styles are banished forever.

Ali said...

Of course you can go home, it just won't look or feel the same! Hopefully, it will be even better than you remembered.

a witch hey? hahahaha!!! That's funny!!!
Your photo that you are using for a blog button...actually resembles my niece a little bit!
I think that there are place that we go where we have a sense of home. Last week I drove the three hours to my home town and when I got close enough to have entered familiar territory (even tho it had changed a lot over the last 20 years) it just felt the same as it did when I was a kid.
I hope this made sense! lol
