Traveling back in time: fairly recent time...not so recent time...and time before my time
*Trainbr*Sentimental Journey*Traincar1p*

Gonna take a sentimental journey
Gonna set my heart at ease
Gonna make a sentimental journey
To renew old memories

Got my bag, got my reservation
Spent each dime I could afford
Like a child in wild anticipation
Long to hear that "All aboard"

Seven, that's the time we leave, at seven
I'll be waitin' up for heaven
Countin' every mile of railroad track
That takes me back

Never thought my heart could be so 'yearny'
Why did I decide to roam?
Gotta take that sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home,

Sentimental journey!

Musicians: bandleader Les Brown & his orchestra






I hope that you'll enjoy reading this blog
where I'll be sharing a growing number of the things
that I personally remember
and the things that were shared by others with me.

There will be included among my personally-experienced stories
and those that have been passed along to me
entries about others who have shared
that need to write memoirs and thoughts,
so, if you share my love for this sort of thing,
I hope that you'll return often to read my writings here.

One thing you'll be noticing is that you'll find pages here
where I've set things up to write a story at a later date.
This might be equivalent to how movie theaters
will show trailers of what they'll be showing in the not-so-distant future.

If you want a quick guide to which stories are finished, go here:
