Memory Flash

Today a flash of history past me by,I could not trust my eyes! Did I just see what just walked past me?

Two boys past me on their way to school. Drainpipe trousers shiny and new Oh! boy did they look cool.To finish off with winklepicker shoes.I could not believe my baby blues.

It whisked me back to carefree days of scooters, boas and purple haze.My mind took off and had a whirl there I stood the younger girl.

Black and white shift dress and knee high shiny white plastic boots a mini skirt to attract whistles and car horn  hoots.

One again I was sixteen, free and happy  a Carnaby Queen. I was never tall but always lean, I loved the fashions to wear them I was keen.

Well that was fab and groovy it was certainly the way to be! But sadly life goes on and  my dream is dashed and again my youth has gone.

But I don’t care and I don’t mind I am still seventeen inside my head I find!!

    & Bryan’s “18 till I die” is all that echoes now…
    May you preserve that inner child in you till your last breath…

    history repeating itself or deja vu?
    every generation has its own … The other day my little girl went to school on crazy socks day… A day whee they wear missed matched socks and or funky color / print. I am seeing this alot… We did this back in my day but because we didn’t have matching socks not as a fad.
