I was lamenting over the library, feeling like it is going to become a thing of the past and that made me nostalgic for other things, like drive in movies and life with two year olds.

What are you feeling nostalgic over?

Funny you should ask.

A couple nights ago, I put on the YOUTUBE collection of the KINGSTON TRIO's greatest hits, to listen to while I did something else.

And I ended up weeping, every now and then, for people (with whom) and places (where) we had sung these songs together.
Many of the people are dead, and many of the places are no longer in business.

I find myself thinking back over the years when life was fun, everyone was alive and healthy and we didn't have to social distance and wear masks.

I had a few friends over yesterday (3 and me) for cards and one lady I hadn't seen in a while was here. I told her I'd love to give her a hug but couldn't because of the Covid-19 problem. We promised each other when this pandemic was over, we'd both get a big hug. I miss seeing my friends, visiting, eating, going together.

Ahh - Nostalgia ! - Not what it used to be.

(Thought I'd get in quick and be the first).

I was driving in what once was FIL's old Explorer. No, XM, no CD player. Just radio and cassette player. I dug in the glove box and found a cassette tape he recorded that he hand wrote, "sentimental 1940's". I thought about how much that tune list must have meant to him. He was at Normandy, then at the Japanese surrender in the Pacific. And the Kansas farm boy caught a war bride in 1944, in NYC. Brad

I really miss all the drive in theaters that used to be around here. There’s one people are trying to save I know of

Mom, Dad, sister, all the uncles, aunts, cousins, friends and family friends. There are so few of us left. It sucks to be the last one standing.

I tend to look ahead more than reflecting on the past, but a little nostalgia once in a while is a good thing.

Oh, and welcome back, Mander. We missed your smiling posts.

I got in so much trouble as a young pre teen my dad once shipped me out to a friends farm for the summer .  It worked , no trouble there & I met my first love & think maybe she was visiting there for the same reason I was !

When pocket knives weren't weapons.

When people used phones to talk to eachother.

When only ten donuts fit in a 12-donut box.

My dad was in Korea . He had 1000’s of slides from there, and Germany, Poland, Slovakia etc. on Sunday eves if he was nagged enough, he’d pull them out and we’d watch slides all night. Mom would make fried green tomaters... and us kids would have a ball. I miss those nights. Grampa would come over and we’d crawl all over him.... laughing and giggling.What a guy

Fun fact:
When I was a VERY young youngster, I didn't know the DIFFERENCE between some Big Words, like "Nostalgia" and "Neuralgia".

So I thought the nice people on TV were selling something that cured "Headaches, Neuritis, and Nostalgia".
Didn't know what "Nostalgia" was, but I figured that it must have SOMETHING to do with "NOSTRILS", otherwise, why call it a name that sounded so much like it was based on NOSTRIL"??

Ain't words FUN?

I miss the old days when I had the leg strength and the sense of balance to go river fishing.
My waders are rotting, the rods I built are covered in dust. The dermestid beetles have probably eaten my fly-tying supplies.

My mom, who was a young adult during the depression was known to observe: "Good old days?? ...You can have 'em!!"

I'm nostalgic for checks. I like writing them, and cashing them. There's something tangible about a check. It made me sad the day my company forced everyone to move to direct deposit.

I think to much nostalgia is not a very healthy thing for us. I don't even like my wife hanging family photos on the walls....and I don't like going back to places that I frequented in my young days. Now and then, I'll make a special time and I'll sit quietly with the old family albums....But life is for the living...and I'm damn sure I'm going to try to get my share. I look forward....to my kids and grankids...to new places and things....and to my next project, and collect all sorts of bit's and pieces that might be handy for projects decades into the future. I figure I've got enough stuff stored around here to keep me busy for at least 80 more years.

When I first learned to ride a bicycle my parents taught me that pedestrians had the right of way on the sidewalk, and that I should ride around them on the grass.

So every time I encountered someone while riding, I rode around them, and said to myself (and sometimes out loud), "Presbyterians have the right of way."

I was scrolling through another of my sites that i visit and ran across a post that said "Beach Music Friday" so I clicked on it and it had a bunch of old songs that we used to dance to at the beach (and at home) ....... sung by General Johnson and the Chairman of the Board, the Drifters, the Tams, the Embers, the Catalinas, etc. ...... at places like Fat Harolds, The Beach Club, The Pad, Pawley's Pavilion ..... all around Myrtle and North Myrtle Beach. What a great time and such wonderful memories.
