FC: The Parthemore's 2010

1: Old Memories I treasure sweet old memories As time goes swiftly by. A few bring smiles of happiness And some tears to the eye. They all are precious in their way, Reopening doors of old That have been shut these many years-- What pictures they unfold! These dear old, sweet old memories All play their special part In bringing joy and opening up The latch strings of the heart.

As another person, on a level platform, recedes from you towards magnetic south, they appear taller. When they approach you, coming towards magnetic north, they become shorter. This is contrary to the laws of perspective.
