Paris- whatever

This photo is for grandpa, who may have photos of Paris now (thankfully, I am not bitter), but I have photos (drumroll please) of the boys at Mint Springs. I have been a bit nostalgic lately. This weekend we went to my old stomping grounds of Mint Springs. The location is still unbelievable, there is nothing like looking up at all those green trees and mountains. I have been going there for 22 years- and my kids can say they have been going there since they were 2 and 1- now they are 3 and 4 and swim all over the place. This was the first time I sat on the sand and watched them swim and wasnt in the water with them the whole time. I didnt read a book or anything, but I sense time flying by.

Hey! I myself have been coping with tons of nostalgia here. I drove out to Greenwood not too long ago in addition to my usual trek out to sugar hollow (FULL of killer swimming holes). I do this when I feel as though the walls of C'ville are closing in on me and I need to get out!!! Happens at least once a week. This drive is full of nostalgia. Driving through areas that were once truely old stomping grounds. Thoughts of Dan Cheatham and Betty Jo come into play (how are they?), what about Wendy Ingels and Jimbo and Tom Barbour and Edgar Green too! Yes it's true I relive my younger years and wonder where everyone is and how they're doing these days. I trample through the same fields that Dan and I use to explore and wonder how the hell is that b**** Amy Radcliff doing? Not that I really care now BUT back in those days she was what occupied most of my thoughts. What a long,strange trip it's been. How did I get here?!?
