The annual 4th of July carnival is this week in Marceline, MO. Food, fun, fellowship, rides galore, and a chance to remember those long-ago times when a person was young, and the world stretched out before them, mysterious and magical.
Back then, life sure seemed to be slower-paced; it was a period for finding yourself and for finding that special someone to hang out with, whether it be disco dancing at the Cedar Cinema, or lounging up against lockers at ol’ BHS, or eating powdered doughnuts at White’s Grocery before school started. 🙂
Oh, to be a kid again. In love with your best friend, but not knowing the words to convey that to her.
I am thankful that I finally got the courage up to tell her…27 years later. LOL.
I love you, Jeannie. Thanks for sharing your life, and another year at the carnival, with me. 🙂
