I was saddened to read that our old apartment complex we used to live in has pretty much been condemned -Read more about that here. It definitely wasn't like that when we lived there -sure it wasn't the best place to live -But, it was alright especially when we had a good apt. manager who tried to keep the riff raff out and it was being kept up with. Since I partially grew up in Tulsa I've lived a few places around town -But, this was the 1st place we lived on our own as a family in Tulsa -so, it held a lot of memories. At the time we thought it was pretty good -for those that live around here you might remember Eastland Mall that was next to it -We also had a Target and Toys R US around there -Of course it isn't a mall now and I think only Toys R Us is left over there. We had a pretty good place -it was a townhouse with the living room, half bath, and kitchen downstairs -and then upstairs there was another full bathroom and the 2 bedrooms. We were also on the corner so, only 1 neighbor on the other side -which we had good neighbors -a couple who eventually had a couple kids-twins actually. Sure there were a few bad times like getting robbed once and the car broken into a couple of times -It started to go downhill before we left -I remember once looking out the window to see police officers poking around or going after someone? It took awhile for us to get out and be able to buy our own home -glad we did -But, it's still sad to know what it once was like to what it is now. Sorry, for the reminiscing -I'm sure I'll do that on here more. A lot of the pictures I found were around Christmas time -Which seems pretty fitting since Christmas just passed - So, there you have it.
