Ever Google Your Childhood?

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida and left my childhood home in 1986 because of a job opportunity and have never been back.  The likelihood of me ever getting a chance to revisit my place of birth is slim and none!  More none than slim.  So I decided to take a trip down memory lane via Google images.

I tried to find my childhood home.  Sadly, the house I grew up is was torn down and the land it stood on was turned into a parking lot.  That house wasn’t exactly paradise.  But I never dreamed it would become a parking lot.

Next, I searched for the school that I attended 5th grade to 8th grade (from 8 years old to 12 years old).  I found a very clear picture of the church building which is right next to the school.  It was a Catholic school and mass attendance was required.  It was also the building was where my 8th-grade graduation ceremony took place.

Incredible!  The building looks exactly the same.  Proof of life!  Proof of MY life.

Looking at the photograph gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
