    11 years old and excited that the Apollo 11 Astronauts were going to walk on the Moon that summer. I remember vividly staying up late into a hot July night watching the flickering black & white TV, and hearing Neil Armstrong saying those words as he stepped onto the lunar surface...."One small step for man...One giant leap for mankind". Great time to be an American in the glory days of NASA.

    Unbeknownst to me, kindergarten loomed in my near future. I was quite reluctant to attend.

    Just finished tenth grade and had a new (at least to me) '56 Chevy! Felt like I owned the world.

    Trying to get used to the heat in Scottsdale Az. Only took that one summer though. And I really enjoyed living with people who appreciated veterans instead of the scumbags in Seattle.

    Same as now. Drooling and crapping my diaper.
    I was six weeks old then, I don't really have a good excuse now.

    Made me do a double take. Somewhere in our archives we have a pic of our daughter that is almost identical. Even the pony looks the same. Believe it was taken in San Bernardino around '76.

    Just finished freshman year in High School and never been kissed (not counting getting assaulted by a girl in the cubbies in second grade) Soaking my head in chlorine 2 - 3 hours a day, weeding the garden, and trying to get some sun.
