    Dont remember whether I posted earlier

    Good Morning dearies,There's a place within our hearts
    Where we keep our favorite memories,
    The ones that never fail to make us smile --
    And when life becomes too hectic
    It's such a special feeling
    To close our eyes and reminisce awhile.
    (Amanda Bradley
    Who doesn’t want to think of their childhood days and teenage days which are the best as there were no responsibility especially when you are a younger child. Just was thinking of those days when once in a month we were given castor oil to drink and that day very simple food. Every Friday we were supposed to take oil bath and that too not little oil, no shampoos those days but cheeyaka powder , sometimes the oil in the hair does not go and the face also used to look oily after washing it nicely with soap also. Slowly the cheekai was replaced by Mira seekakai powder and then with shampoo. Don’t know how many people take oil bath on Fridays.
    Those days the bride never used to put any make up during her marriage, I had also not put but the bride used to look special on that day. During my cousin’s daughter’s marriage her cousins had put make up for her during Reception. Without make up only cousin and her daughter look pretty. Cousin’s daughter was asked to remove the make up by her mother in law saying that they asked her son to marry her seeing her natural beauty.
    Memories of the days spent with my brothers and sisters , those lovely days will they come back again. Grandmother making the special dishes which we all used to like. My brother used to like Sevai very much and she used to make it so many times though it was a hard task.
    Those lovely days spent with my best friend in her house , two hours everyday studying and playing and on Sundays more hours playing scrabble. Everyone in friend’s house were very nice. Everyday I used to go in her car to school. Will those days come back again.

    I treasure sweet old memories as the time goes swiftly by
    A few bring smiles of happiness and some tears to the eye

    They all are precious in their way reopening the door of old
    That have been shut these many years what pictures they unfold

    These dear old, sweet old memories all play their special part
    In bringing joy and opening up the latch strings of the heart ...
    have a nice day

    :hello:We the septuagenarians haunted by olden day’s sweet moments and spots in our life.

    You have once again brought out those sweetly days that you spent with your kin and kith . The description about marriage, groom no special make up & Friday oil Bath regimen would be easily relatable by your contemporaries.

    I have read many of your old posts and even posted FBs in that.
    Even this post you begin with an apprehension that it must have had posted by you earlier.

    Here I give you link that refers to your old sweet posts.
