I know what you mean Marge. I grew up in San Diego and Vista, and a lot has changed. I was almost as surprised at what was still the same. I would be totally in the dark about where we were (because of the changes), and then all of the sudden we were in an area that hadn't changed a bit! The palm tree in my dad's front yard is so tall now! When we moved there, we could sit on the couch and look over the top of the tree. What we saw when we looked over the top of the tree was a big field full of cows and cranes, but for the last 30 years there are just a lot of apartments there.
