My Life …..

I was just looking at the photos that are on my home page.  The ones that my daughter chose.   I suppose that I was about  “4-5”  in the photo from my childhood, and I know exactly how old I am in the other photo.  The second photo was taken last fall by my daughter so I was “53”.  So that would make close to fifty years that have happened in between photos.  A lifetime by all accounts.  I was just thinking that it would be an interesting exercise to go through those almost fifty years, one at a time.  How much do I remember?  How much do I want to remember?  How much do I want to share?  Can I actually put a date on things that happened thirty or forty years ago.  I am going to try.  Also wherever possible I will post photos, now that should be a hoot.  Hairstyles and pant lengths, oh my…

Over the past few years, I have been on a quest for self improvement, and  of self examination, so I figure this would be good therapy.  GOL (giggling out loud).  Why not?

Well, Mr. Alvin is commanding me to get his supper for him.  Sure would be nice if he could get his own.  But that might prove to be …… well not so much.  So I am going to publish these thoughts and see what you think.  Is this something you would be interesting in reading?

While  you ponder that question, I am going to give supper to the boss of this household, my dog, Alvin.  Truly he wears the “pants” in this house.

Until later……

    I think those would be very interesting posts to read. There are some things that will trigger memories for me, and others that will give me a peek into your life the years we were out of contact. I don’t know if you were ever aware of how much my mom thought and worried about you and your siblings when your dad packed you up and moved away from Corning.

    When I was reading your post, what came into my mind was how after you were living with your grandma we would swoop some clothes and shoes – I specifically I remember wearing your platform shoes to school. LOL.

      Thank you cousin…. isn’t life great …… remembering those platform shoes ….. I saw some in a magazine that were similar to a pair that I had back in the 70’s. I guess I should have kept them….. LOL.
      Trust life is treating you great. Amanda celebrated her 31st birthday yesterday. Her Mom baked her favourite “red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing”.
      Let’s Skype soon…..
      Have a great day.
