Junie's Place: Old friends and memories

Old friends and memories

Recently on Facebook there have been a lot of nostalgic memories being surfaced and passed around among some folks! 'Way Back' day brought pics to be posted from early days by a lot of people. It's been a lot of fun...of the bittersweet kind, to be honest; for who among us does not have mixed emotions of our youth?

Not long ago an old school friend (a friend of my sister, actually) found my name on 'Classmates.'
I had joined that website years ago, hoping to find some of my girlfriends from Jr. High.

Thomas (Tommy) and my sister were in 3-4 grade together. I knew him too, but I was a couple grades ahead. He recognized our name and emailed me...LOL- and as they say,'The Rest is History!'
We were all 3 happy to connect with someone from our 'Way back' days.

Turns out we are all on FB-. It's been fun talking about old-OLD- times and comparing who we remember - in common! There's something very special about meeting up again with someone who grew up in your own little town-went to your schools and knows, at least some of the same people!
(LOL - If we can get the names to fit the faces!!)


Our friend sent me this in an Email tonight...very fitting, I thought!




Life is full of surprises!

(this just happens to be a youtube I've played often)

I've also enjoyed seeing everyone's old pictures and as you say, the memories they have brought back of our youth certainly is bittersweet. So often I wish we could go back to these days when life was so simple. How fun that you were able to reconnect with an old school friend:-) Love this song!! xoxo
