And I Used To Walk To School In The Snow. Uphill. Both Ways.
Recently, I was waxing nostalgic with a friend about the small town where I grew up and how it’s no longer a small town and that it now, in fact, has a freakin’ Walmart in it. WTF? So, in memorium, I’m going to take a little trip down memory lane. Come along if you will … this won’t take long:
No post written by some old lady who is totally bitter that her little town full of orange avocado groves got turned into Disneyland a booming metropolis would be complete without an image of what the town looks like today.

Okay, I think the rant is over for today. I’ll just leave you with another vintage postcard of where I live now … only this was about a hundred years ago. It makes me think that there might be some old lady somewhere gritting her teeth over the state of this town and how it used to be all sand dunes and flower farms and the pier had a huge salt water plunge where you could play all day for a nickel …. *sigh* Old age is cool.
