A Walk Down Memory Lane

Sitting here in the Sierra foothills of Northern California and I am far from home. Looked up 1530 Sheridan Ave - just down the block from Taft High. Sheridan Avenue looked fine. Of course things were different. I showed Russ the building I lived in until I was 18 and showed him 1504 Sheridan Ave. where my grandparents lived. My parents started their marriage in a basement apartment and my eldest sister started her life there. Checked out the surrounding areas. What a blast from the past. Hard to believe I left this neighborhood in Christmas of 69. A long time ago. Who would have thought a Bronx girl ended up living in the boonies but it is a warm feeling in my chest to see where I started my life. Any comments cause I know I rarely post. Russ and I have a lot of health challenges. Can't go back but it was a hellava ride and a great time to be a kid. Blessings.
