The pages that I used both in this batch and the previous one are from a children's reader called Once Upon a Storytime. I read the same book when I was a child and some of the stories and illustrations have brought back memories as I've been going through the book recently.
It is strange, indeed, to be standing squarely in your present life, riffling through an old book, and suddenly you're on the playground of your grammar school, from 55-60 years ago. Life was good enough back then, but I'm sure glad to be at this end of mine now...instead of having to face 60 years of all that comes between childhood and being a senior. I certainly wouldn't want to have to do it over again...
...until my next lifetime, of course. Where I sincerely hope to come back as my cat, cared for and loved as much as BeeGee is.
