PROMPTuesday #168: Auld Lang Syne

Remember this song?

    LOL @ Aunt Snow’s comment about the song. She’s right, although when I first heard this song, one snowy day driving into Harvard Square, it made me sad. Still does. Anyway, here’s my take on your prompt!

  6. That song is from THIRTY YEARS AGO?

    Holy crap. I’m old.
