When we were young

In 1947 before having kids, Jim and June (Dad and Mom) got a thrill driving a car over this bridge. "We would drive fast, hit the top and drop down over the other side. It gave you goosebumps." The bridge still stands near Grantsville, Maryland by Route 40, now a pedestrian bridge and center attraction to a park.

Mom and Dad are pictured here celebrating 65 years of marriage September 4, 2011.

Modeled after a layout by Julie Overby in Scrapbook Trends.

The "Yesteryears" wordlet was a gift from my Australian friend Vija (Kobe on Scrapbook.com).
