The charms that I chose to use tell only part of my story from my childhood.
I was born in 1964. Lived in Florida for part of my childhood until my parents divorced and we moved to Va where I still reside. I have been a Redskin fan since moving to Va. At a young age I started a dairy. I also went to church every Sunday with my mother. When my mother remarried there was 7 kids in the house.She did a lot of sewing. My mom and I made a outfit for my oldest son for professional photo.We played monopoly a lot on family night. I really hate that game.I find it takes too long to play. Johnny cash and Elvis Presley was the music of choice for my parents.You know as well as I; what they listened to is what you also listen to. The only difference is we listen to music today on cd's,and maybe a cassette.As a child we listened to music off of old 45 records and 33's( albums). My parents listen off 8 tracks. Hmmm....How time can change something. One things for sure Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley music has never changed and is still loved, admired by many today including the younger generation. My choice of music as a teen was Rock, more to the southern. Still love today along with other choices.What good old Jonny and Elvis has done for all!
Cloth diapers were around. I would never have thought of using them, but I did with my first child to make ends meet from time to time. There has always been a baby gerber contest, even today. They are always looking for a new one. I don't think there will ever be a better match than the original gerber baby. Tie tye was a trend as a young girl. To be hip and be in style at school you just had to have some bobby socks and saddle shoes. Last story before I go this memory is so vivid to me... I had the pleasure of seeing my father not to long ago before he passed. Mined you we are talking about my biological father. See after my parents divorced we lost a lot of contact with him other than a phone call from time to time. If he had of been around, him and I would of been very close. I did get the chance to ask him if he remembers the night he was shaving in the bathroom when mom came in there and hit him in the back of the head with a 8lb cast iron frying pan. Of course he did. He said, I laugh about it today your mom trying to knock some sense in me. If you could only imagine a 4'11'" woman and a 6' man standing and his knees buckles. I've never forgot that night. It was a while before he went out playing with his friends showing off his new cars every other week. That's my story! What's Yours!
