|Little town with big memories|
I have been 60 years of age only once, so I am not sure what I am suppose to be thinking about at this age. But I have been reminiscing a lot about my childhood.
Do we find that our younger years were happier than our older years? We probably think so, but I imagine that it has to do more with our not having to live with as many problems at that age. Anyway, most of our problems were handled by our parents. Most of our focus was upon playing with our friends and doing things with our families. Up to this point in my life, I did not know that bad things could happen to good people.
The Osborn's, the Richardson's, the Byrom's, the Clark's, the Brinson's, the Pippin's and the Payne's all lived in the same neighborhood. Our neighborhood was only one block from school. The football stadium was also part of our neighborhood. Later, the whole neighborhood moved to the other side of the bayou. This was the section of town that was the newest and growing the fastest.
