Nostalgia


One of my favorite songs is Andy Griggs’ “Heaven”. So when I saw the Tuesday Photo Challenge by Dutch Goes The Photo of Nostalgia I immediately thought of that song. Here are two photos from back when I was a little kid.  (I’m not saying how long ago that was..)

This first photo is very special to me. There is a place here in Texas named Canton. Most people know it by First Monday. Each weekend of the first Monday of the month this monster “flea market”opens for folks all over the country to come shop around antiques, home furnishing, collectibles and, of course, funnel cakes. But back in the old days, about 125 years or so after the established market days, I went with my grandmother (one the left), her boyfriend and my very special great Aunt Floy (on the right). We took a picnic and ate out by the car – her green monster on the right side of the photo.

The second photo is one that reminds me of playing in the snow with my dad. Living in north Texas meant that every couple of years you got just enough snow to last one day and make that snowman. This one has a heart, an umbrella and an apron.
