Welcome to Week Five of our fabulous segment Flashback Fridays where the old and new collide on everything from books to movies to first loves to favorite vacations. We'll be "flash-backing" on our own blogs, but most of all, we want YOUR participation as well. So, mark Fridays as your blog days to gaze into the past and smile!
