And didn't the old man also say, "When I was your age I had to walk five miles to school every day, and five miles home from school every day, and it was uphill all the way."

[Our memories play tricks on us at times, it seems.]

I had to laugh.

My son took me back to visit the place where I walked to school as a kid. I'd told him it really was uphill only one way and I only walked two miles. He checked with his car on my route, and said, "Mom, It was 2 1/2 miles one way, and it really was uphill both ways, because both ways there was a hill you had to go up on part of the way. You really could have bragged the "uphill both ways" part! Made me feel kind of good. :0 That has been a happy memory, and it was a walk to a happy place, a little church school. What a lucky person I was!
