    Childhood memories

    So I got "friended" by my best friend when I was five via Facebook. For giggles, I Googled my parents old house, and the saw on Google maps that the boulder we used to play on is still there. I have vivid memories of attempting, not being able to initially, and ultimately climbing this rock. His old house still looks pretty much the same. Do you have any memories of places you used to play or whatnot?

    Lots of great memories from Citrus Park Little League where I played LL baseball for about 7 years as a kid. I was tickled pink when they went to the Little League World Series last year.

    I bought the house I lived in since I was 11 years old, so yes, I am still living in my childhood memories.

    I googled (streetview) most of the places I have lived, the ones that I can remember. Most don't look all that different.

    Alpharetta Georgia is nothing like the town I grew up in. The town had just gotten its first stop light when I left to go to college. Its one of the top 10 most densely populated areas in GA now.

    Dude. I wonder what that would be like? I can still remember vividly, sitting at the kitchen table writing a report that was due the next day for the Science Fair, in 6th grade.

    It is very comforting to me. I see my boys in the rooms my brother and I used to sleep in, playing where I used to play, etc. The only bad part is thinking about how many times I am going to mow the same piece of grass before I die.

    In this economy, we had to let all the hired help go. I tend to casa de jsharr inside and out with the help of my lovely wife and two strapping boys. Our next door neighbor, who recently moved, owns a lawn care service, and for the first time ever, I had a lawn service last year. This year, not so much.

    The house I grew up in, from 3rd grade until my parents moved a few years ago. The people that moved in cut down most of the trees and ripped out all the bushes (shrubberies?). There was a little willow tree that was too small for me to climb on when we moved in. Eventually I could climb it, and it grew to be taller than the house... gone.

    I thought that was why one had kids. I'm glad I don't have to mow my 'rents bigass lawn anymore. Took an hour, back in the day. My nice urban lawn takes me something like 10-15 minutes.

    We had a plum tree at the old place that I learned to climb trees on. Same thing. Miss that tree.

    My fondest childhood memory is probably when we found some fireworks on the playground that were left over from post Stanley Cup victory celebrations the night before, then lit them off with magnifying glasses.

    I actually didn't mind the yard work so much.
    I was more unhappy with the fleet maintenance of the cars. A boy, you give him a few bucks for gas, he can keep it running. Girls, not so much. Well, they were not so inclined at at any rate.

    I bought the house my grandparents owned from 1954 until my grandmother died in 2000. My sister-in-law bought it from my mother and later sold it to us. She made a few changes, but for the longest time, it was very much like my grandparents had left it. While this had its nice moments, sometimes the sense of loss in knowing that my grandparents were gone and would never again inhabit this house was overwhelmingly sad. We have made and continue to make changes, mostly to the colors of the walls and have been bogged down due to weather in a big exterior paint job.

    My parents still own and live in the house where I grew up, and I was over there for a visit today.
