Our local, very good, genealogy group meets on Friday mornings. I am the baby (age-wise) of the group and have a really good time interacting with everyone.
Today we had a visitor who told us about growing up in Nashville from the 1920's thru the 40's. All very interesting stuff. While I was listening to him it struck me that some of what he was relating was not to far different to what I experienced growing up in Scotland.
He brought a friend who it turned out used to live a few houses down from where we are currently located. She shared some interesting info about the history of our sub division so I am going to side track myself for a while and go find out more. Some of her "then" neighbors are some of my "now" neighbors :)
