IF YOU COULD, WOULD YOU...?
In my more nostalgic moments, I sometimes feel that I could again inhabit any previous house I've ever lived in. This was more the case when their neighbour-hoods remained largely unchanged (as they did for many a year), but sadly there have now been quite a few alterations, demolitions, additions, etc., in most of those former areas I knew as a youngster. I suspect that, if I ever won the Lottery and bought all my old houses, it wouldn't be long before those aforementioned changes would erode some of the joy I felt at once again being able to live in the places I stayed as a child, although, who knows? Maybe I'd be able to tolerate things.
So here's a question for all you loyal, reflective, deep-thinking Criv-ites. Imagine for a moment that your childhood home (or homes) yet stands and you could afford to buy it (or them). Would you? If so, why? And if not, same question (more or less) - why not? On with your thinking caps, frantic ones, and let loose in the comments section. Don't let me down.
