Way Back When-esday: Childhood memories

Way Back when I was a little girl, this was a magical place. Way back when this place seemed huge, like a giant castle. Once a year, my grandparents and I stood in line waiting to get inside. My excitement grew with each small step. I knew once inside, I would be where it is Christmas all the time. In the middle of July, I would be entertained by Rudolph and his friends, and get to make my wish on a penny that I would toss in the magical water. Then, for the real treat, just past the animatronics was every kid's dream: A Giant Sundae Bar! I could put all the syrup and candies I wanted on my ice cream! The chocolate and butterscotch were devine! Aaah Heaven! ♪Oh thinking about our younger years... we were young and wild and free♪ (Bryan Adams)

Kellerhaus at Lake Winnepesaukee in New Hampshire still has amazing chocolates and butterscotch, and many other candies that are handmade there since 1906. And, they still have their ice cream bar, and it's still yummy, and still topped off with a little American Flag, but... somehow...it's not quite as big as I remember way back when.

♪Yeah, nothing could change what you mean to me. Oh, there's lots that I could say♪
