Well, it was.
I just ran across numerous articles while looking for a photo of a junior varsity player catching a football – which I didn’t find – and instead kept coming across articles that really brought back some memories for me. Scrolling through the September reel of the Denton Record-Chronicle on our microfilm scanner could have taken forever if I had read everything which is why I scanned some things and made myself skip the rest.
So that is why I chose September of 1993. It is very interesting to look back at your life using the local newspaper as a lens. All these things that took place while you slept, ate, worked or went to school. Maybe you heard about ’em – maybe you didn’t – or had some vague memory that they happened. Or, perhaps you are the consummate storyteller and have made that particular memory something quite fine and your own.
Here are a few things I saved – some of which mean a little something to me – and all of them have nothing to do with the year 2016.
I have to stop and go back to work now. It is fun to dabble in time; run your fingers through it.
