In September of 1958 I was 7 years old.
In 1958 I was in first grade, and my baby brother was four years old, my other baby brother was not even a twinkle in my Dad’s eye yet nor was my sister. My Dad would have been 32 years old that Fall.
My Mother took this photo and baked the birthday cake. We are standing on the south side of the house in front of the Honeysuckle bush/tree. This was the old house before it was remodeled. That is my bedroom window, my room was just off the living room, it was small with just room enough for a single bed and a dresser… My brother was probably still sleeping in his crib.
Back in 1951 I was born at 1:20 AM and weighed 7 pounds and 11 ounces and was 21 1/2 inches long. My Dad was in Korea when I was born. I would go home with my mother to my Maternal Grandparents home.
Yes I am older today. You can do the math.
Later today Far Guy will take me out for a late lunch/early supper where I will have a half strength frozen original margarita to celebrate. (Full strength makes me sleepy and looking for a place to nap it off.)
Happy Birthday to me!
