Thanks to everyone who left a comment on yesterday's post. I left town right after I posted it, and I don't have the time to visit everyone personally today. Seems like reverie posts, as I call them, stir everyone's memories and strike a chord, even if our childhoods were somewhat different. One thing I notice is that no matter what part of the country - or the planet - we are from, we all have things in common. We are more alike than we are different. Too bad we cannot remember that when conflicts arise.
