A Cynthia Flashback Friday

This week went so fast, even though we do have a video Flashback Friday in the works we just did not find the time to get a post up from one of Dave’s many adventures. So as not to give up on the weekly post, here’s a Cynthia Flashback Friday.

I started by going through my old external hard drive that reaches pretty far back in the memory bank. So here’s to remembering all the times “Before” and “Back when…”

Back before “selfies” were a thing and people actually used the camera self-timer options…

And lastly, back when you could just sit back and talk “deep” without bringing up the government, housing costs, or bills…
