Remembering Way Back Then...With Pictures

Some choices we live not only once, but a thousand times over,
remembering them for the rest of our lives...

I remember the first time arriving to California and going to Beverly Hills.  We stayed 
at the Beverly Hills Hotel.  I was impressed to say the least.  I was young and had not 
experienced anything like California before.  Everything for me was exciting.

I clearly remember going into one of the stores in Rodeo Drive.  The salesperson looked
 at me and right away decided that I was not the type who could afford to buy in "her" store.
She was wrong.  My husband at the time came over and asked me, "what would you like?"

Unfortunately both Arvid and I are sick.  All the places we planned on visiting,
and seeing not exactly happening the way we expected.  Yesterday we did go
to Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Walk of Fame and we walked around
 a little in  between of coughing, sniffing and lots of heavy breathing.

 Still I remembered being in many of these places years and years ago.  I even found
 the exact steps on Rodeo Drive I sat on years ago.  Lots of memories here
in California.  Next time we come for longer and we on't be sick!!!

The present changes the past. Looking back you do not find what you left behind.
The past is always tense, the future perfect so though nice to reminisce, I love the now.

Back in California I had 5 kitties.  To this day I remember them and think of them.
There are days that I really miss them and can't help but wonder what might have been.

Going down memory lane is not always the easiest thing to do, but for me it was good. 
 Going back to California with Arvid is good.  Will be time for new memories there.

Wishing everyone a very good day.  Remember,
the past is a nice place to visit, but not a good place to stay.

I'm making more new memories with the one I love.
I'm gunna love you like nobody loves you.. Arvid Hvidsten...
