Down Memory La La Lane
Life tends to get hard sometimes
as we make our way to the finish line.
So many ups and downs, twists and turns
that we think our lives will never settle.
Then comes a time of remembrance to where
you can ease down memory lane in that La La
Euphoria. The times that seemed much brighter
and happier, and everyone is giving and kind.
Down Memory La La Lane you want only to
reminisce about the good old days; sending
laughter and sunshine to all who will listen.
Come closer and I will tell you a story.
It was a time of good cheer and much food
at my dad’s parent’s house. All the family
members were very close. The cousins
would always find mischief to get into.
It was a lovely Easter day and my mother
had dressed my brothers and I in white.
But while at my grandparents, we found
a creek and schemed a way of fun.
We dammed up the creek that had plenty of red
clay mud. The girls asked the boys to toss them
in (so that way it wasn’t their fault.) The fun was
magnificent, but now the white clothes were red.
We were gone for hours, and by the time we returned,
the parents were "lovingly" mad. We said our goodbyes
and couldn’t wait for the next time. The ride home
was cold, but BOY did we ever have a great time!
That’s one way to ease stress Down Memory La La Lane. You are more than welcome to share your memories with us!! In order to keep a healthy life, easing stress is the FIRST KEY to getting there.

2nd photo: taken by one of our parents, 2009
The first photo is of myself and brothers along with our cousins that found mischief when ever we were together. The others hadn't been born yet. The second photo is with some of those younger cousins at one of our reunions. To let you know, these are not all the cousins. Some couldn't make it that day. We hope some day to get us ALL together again, at least one more time.
