Rewind 15 Years

Last week we took a Sunday drive to Cool Springs Park "3 mountains over" from Morgantown.  It's a place with a bunch of old curious fixtures.  15 years ago we took a vacation day together, sent the boys to school and day care, and drove there on a pretty fall day.  On that day, I took the bottom picture of Bob posing in front of the silo with the advertisement "Film Sale, 3 Rolls $1.00".  That picture was always a favorite of ours.  Last Sunday we relived the moment.

When Bob studied these last night, he compared and contrasted:
"Jeans-jeans,
Photo vest-photo vest
Hiking boots, hiking boots,
Nikon, Nikon
Film, Digital"

I added the "You and I-You and I"

No need to rewind the clock. . . the best things remain the same!
