(No making fun of the hair do or the groovy 60's pants thank you very much. If you can't say something nice thenDo 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?
don't say any thing at all at least make it funny)
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.
