If You Could Pick Any Decade to Live In Lubbock, What Decade Would it Be?
OK, I know this seems like a weird question, but it makes you think: What if I could choose to re-live a decade in my hometown? Was it high school? How about your early childhood? Maybe now is the best time of your life! Whatever decade you choose, I want to know!
I would choose the mid-eighties. Back then, my entire family was alive and living in town or at least in close proximity and we spent a lot of great times doing a bunch of fun stuff together. Now, many of them have passed away or moved away and that's a bummer. To re-live that part of my life (barbecuing, riding motorcycles, playing horseshoes and going to Buffalo lake with all of my uncles, aunts, cousins and extended family) would be incredible. I miss those days terribly.
Here's a picture of me as a kid getting ready to hurt myself on my sweet Suzuki 50 motorcycle that I used to ride everywhere...including the trails at Buffalo Lake:
How about you? If you can throw in a specific story about a particular Lubbock landmark, that would be great!
