Small Towns & Courthouse Squares

We visited my mother-in-law recently and took a day trip to the area where she grew up.  We drove around the town square as she pointed out places she went as a young girl when her family would come to town.  One place that was fascinating to me was a tiny building that was still a beauty shop just like it was 70 years ago when my mother-in-law went there for her first permanent.  She said she was there several hours.  There was a machine with long attachments that connected to each roller on her head or something to that effect.  I can just picture her as a teenager with all these things sticking out of her head.  It’s so neat hearing stories first hand about the past.  It’s like taking a walk back through time and seeing history through the eyes of the person telling the story.  Now as I’m approaching the wonderful experience of being a grandmother soon, I will probably one day help our grandchild, when he’s older, to take a walk back through time and experience history.  How exciting that will be!!  🙂
