The good old days of Phoenix


One thing that everyone seems to agree about is that the good old days of Phoenix were better. People were friendlier, there was less hate and violence, children were better behaved, that sort of thing. Depending on your age, it could be the '90s, the '80s, the '70s - heck, I know people who fondly remember the good old days of the 1940s. And if you're a history fan, like me, you may enjoy visiting the good old days of territorial Phoenix. I kinda like the 1890s myself.

And what I have discovered that the good old days are anything you want them to be. I often think of future generations who will look back at today with fondness as the good old days. A simpler time, before, well, I don't know yet.

Yeah, you can tell I love the good old days of Phoenix. And I really can't get enough of them - as I post them on the web. And yes, I love the good old days. But ultimately I am an optimist for the future - and I know that there will be more good old days to come!
