Hexagon Swap

Not much going on with all the scout stuff. So glad Hexagons are portable, so I was able to join in the fun hexagon swap this round! I sent Mr Gnome off this morning.


And a totally random note - my old home popped into my mind while I was on the computer, and with google's yellow streets I thought I may get a chance to see it.

We moved away from Parsons Drive in Avon Lake, Ohio near the start of 5th grade, before I turned 10. I couldn't believe it when the map popped up....

I still have dreams about riding my bike around the neighborhood - to the library - and to school. In my dreams the street is u-shaped and has a little connector street that joins to a line of others.

I totally thought that was just something my brain made up. I don't remember it, but I guess my brain does! That's exactly how the map shows the streets around my old house.

Memories are amazing. Just had to share.

How neat that you found your old house, could you actually see any photos of the house or just an arial view of the street?

I love your hexes!

Your hexes look so pretty all stacked up! How many have you made thus far? I don't know if I could find the street I grew up on in Singapore but that would be cool to see again.

Your hexes are so very cute!

It is really interesting how the brain makes connections.. Several years ago I had to make a trip through the city we lived in when I was maybe six. I decided to see if I could find the house without a map - just by feel - and figured I was insane for trying until I came across our neighbourhood grocery, then the hill that was giant at the time, my school, and the first house I remember living in. I was shocked but nostalgia can carry a person a very long way.
