I hope you enjoyed this flashback into another time. It wasn't all that long ago, but just one look at the economy tells so much. I hope that we can all get back to a much simpler time when living was less hectic and stressful and we could enjoy the people in our lives to the fullest.
Happy Day Everyone!
