So true! I love to hear the stories of when I was a child and even more when my parents were children.

Paul, thank you so much for the thoughtful birthday wishes.
I've backtracked through your archive and quite enjoyed my little visit here.
I don't know how much Doogie Howser soft-porn I can handle though, even if he looks pretty tasty these days. It's just kinda disturbing. :p

That's very true!!
My favorite story has been told at every opportunity and it is STILL great. It's the story of my father and the cheese-filled sausages. I don't know how well it will translate online, but perhaps I will share it on my blog tomorrow.

As we grow older, some of our stories indeed get sweeter, hence "back in the good old days...".

Blue et.al., isn't it interesting how we like to remember the good, but forget about the bad?
