Okie dokie! Here on our second day in Roswell we couldn't wait to drive by the homes we lived in and schools our children attended. Do you do that too when you go back to the places you've lived?
The above is the Plains Park Shopping Center. It looks just the same as it did when we lived here. There had been a Piggly Wiggly grocery store, gone now, where I shopped.
We lived on the right hand side of this photo. This was a very nice apartment then! It was a three bedroom, two bath with laundry area. There was atrium in the very center where all three bedrooms looked out on. The master bedroom had sliding glass doors so you could go out there. We very seldom went out there because it was just too hot. I can remember the first meal I cooked and used the oven. I started to smell something hot and opened the oven door and there was a piece of cardboard laying on the bottom and it was about to catch on fire! I don't think I'd ever had a new stove so I didn't think to check to make sure nothing was in there. Well, the condition of the apartment just made us sad. But I do have a cute little story to tell you.
This was the next house we bought in an area called Enchanted Hills and on a clear day you could see the Capitan Mountains. When we lived here it looked so much better because the shutters and trim were two pretty shades of light green.
Then on to Goddard High School where our son attended. It is named after rocket pioneer Robert Hutchings Goddard. You can see the big rocket there at the front. My son was in the band and played the drums. Lots of memories here too!
Hope you've enjoyed going down memory lane with me and I've got a couple more Roswell posts to show you.
