Where Is the Memory of Yesteryear?
I don't understand this. I had the Milton Bradley board game Memory when I was little, and I remember very well the beautiful pictures on the cards. There was a white duck on a red background, for instance, a garden of posies, and a particularly enchanting one of a dark-eyed little girl with her hair swept sideways by the breeze. I just got the game for my son, and the pictures have all been changed to something this side of cartoonish. I'm deeply disappointed. Was everything more beautiful once, or am I making it all up? Où sont les neiges d'antan?
