The Wonder Years

Warning: I’m getting older and more nostalgic by the minute it seems. If this post seems sappy, that’s why. I fight the urge to begin sentences with “Back in my day….” or  ”You kids don’t know the first thing about….” I don’t want be “that guy” but I do have to say that it seems like for me,...
