In a previous thread Casey remembered sunflowers because his dad grew them back in the 'Forties. Even for the oldest among us, that's a long time ago. I have faint memories of living in Hawaii in my formative years, way back before it became a State. Toda...  

You know we are fortunate that photos from the Fifties are rare

They generally contain multiple people doing fairly memorable things. I now have more than 100,000 digital images of boring sunsets, jumping dolphins and watches galore! They will all go into the digital trash can someday. Imagine if I had children or a w... 

I is to blame but I don’t think I can go back...

Who doesn't love old photographs...

I can vividly remember when I got glasses - I was 8 - and I saw leaves on trees for the first time

 By: cazalea : July 12th, 2019-13:54
