Every wonder back to your younger years?  Would you have done some things differently?  Remember some of the things you had as a young person and kind of wish you could have those things today?

I think back when I was 12 and purchased a “Jerry Mahoney” ventriloquist doll with my paper route money.  Even though he was made of wood, over time, he became a friend. Wish I had him today.

Red WagonI wish I had my “Red Rider BB Gun,” that I could give to my grandson.  Also my red wagon with the wooden sides.  Before my first car I had a motor bike then a motor scooter.  I’d be the talk of the neighborhood if I rode them around the block today.

My father was a policeman back in Iowa and I remember one of his friends gave me his traffic whistle when I was about 8 years old.  It was a treasure, but I lost it in the hay field where I grew up.  I’d love to have it today.

I remember my grandfather giving me my first pocket knife.  That’s also a treasure to a young boy, but it’s long gone and I wish I had it today.

Memories of things in the past.  There’s also memories of people in the past.  Close friends in grade school, junior high, high school and college.  Wouldn’t it be fun to have them all sitting in a room with you right now?

musicalnotesMusic brings back memories.  Listen to a tune from yesteryear and you’ll remember exactly where you where and who you were with!

All those things and all those memories.  Good times and sad times and they all make up who we are today.

Today is an interesting word.  Today is the day we dreamt about yesterday.  It’s here and it’s now and that’s exciting!  If you think about it, it’s always today, so let’s make memories today!
