Fresno Nostalgia Tour: Part 1

While we were in Fresno over Easter weekend, I took Brad on a "nostalgia tour" of the places where I grew up. I had SO many memories flooding back!

Looking worn and unkempt, here is the house I grew up in for 21 years. We had no gate, and they have built a second floor over the three car garage, which was our "summer kitchen".

My kindergarten playground looks about the same at Bullard Elementary school.

My Junior High looks about the same, except it is now a Middle School and has a "Media and Computer center".

My high school looks twice as big as it did when I graduated in 1970!

We also visited the Catholic school where I taught fourth grade, eighth grade, and was vice-principal. It had an Easter egg hunt going on. I peeked into my old classroom window. Wow...some things never change!

Finally, we visited the condo I lived in during my early 30s until I moved to the Bay Area in 1987. I took a peek through the gate into the courtyard.

I had so much fun re-visiting my old stomping grounds, and sharing new stories with Brad!

It is great to re-visit those haunts. It reminds you both of where you were and of where you are now!

As Jerry said, it can be so much fun to revisit the past -- and see how far you have come!

Eden:

Thank you for sharing something from your past. I'd love to do that... perhaps this summer...

I love the Catholic School sign that said "Home of the Rebels"! Tsk, tsk... LOL, did you come up with that tag line?

Barb Cabot:

What a nice post Palma. It's wonderful when you can return to a time in your past and have it remain much the same way as you remember. What nice memories. Thank you for sharing.

nancyhol:

I loved seeing those places from your past!

It sounds like you had a wonderful Easter weekend.

I enjoyed seeing photos of your childhood days as well as where you taught and was a VP and where you lived. Isn't it fun to go back and relive so many memories.
