|This is so beautiful! It made me cry, and remember good times past, growing and learning and loved ones lost. Fond Memories are one of the joys of life.

|Totally fabulous... I can only gaze whistfully on. This is my kinda Katy-did. Really taken with your sister's secret notebook... and even perhaps a little saddened by a more sinister edge to the finale, if not deeply tragic... I hope I'm wrong. But I pick this up in your choice of words in the first line, too. If not, this is doubly potent and poignant. Whatever, Linda, this is classy writing. Rich and wondrous for certain sure. xx|

|I love nostalgic writes, and this is a grand one; and I really miss those 'good old days.'|
|Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
|Wonderfully written, Lin. Though in a different place at a different time, I remember backyard "kick the can" and "higher than the ground" and "it". I remember hidden childhood kisses and the first touch of a girl's breast in the basement.
Thank's for the memories, Lin.

|Wonderfully sad, a tragedy in those childhood days. Gripped me like the shock of the first dip in spring waters.
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Wiping teardrops from the corner of my eyes, this one triggered a floodgate of my own childhood memories to play before me. Yes I remember those days at the lake, and Nesbit Orange pop, and the first flirting and kissing of girls when a few mouthfuls of any kind of alcohol would automatically make us drunk but me thinks we were more drunk on youth and life. Thank you for the shared memories...

|Old times are better than new times, because now the sadness are enhanced everyday by everyday tragedies and hardship while old times memories have innocence and always happy endings...

|What a gift you have. Gene is right on the button! The photo brings back a memory at my grandpa's cabin. What fun. Never drank Lucky out of a can but I remember the 11.5oz bottles and the puzzle under the cap. Follow Gene's advice this is really good. Patrick|

You take me back to those innocent uninhibited days...
swinging on a hemp rope
worn smooth by childhood
falling into cool laughter
