I published this on my birthday in 2009, but I still think it tells my story so let’s go again!!
Today is my birthday and I’ve attained a certain age. I have plans, things to do, places to go. But today I’m looking back.
(I tried to cut my own bangs–oops.)
For a few years after “the war,” I was an only child. We lived in an apartment in Chicago where I played.
I REALLY wanted to be a “cowgirl.” I dreamed of the far west. I idolized Hopalong Cassidy.
While I was running around the streets pretending to be this and that, my parents were building a new house and having a new baby.
I noticed immediately that the driveway made a PERFECT stage:
Time passed and many new houses were built filling up the street, new brothers arrived.
Eventually they all moved into a bigger house, but by then I was gone, starting a new life. I moved to the far west to be a cowgirl.
Here’s to another year of fun, out on the ranch!!!
Happy Birthday,🎂 have a blessed day! Enjoy seeing these older photos.
