Franny's latest post took me back to my childhood so I started looking at the old photos. Just thought I'd share a few with you.
Here I am (in middle) at San Luis Obispo in Sept '58 with my beloved hula hoop that just came into fashion. My younger sister Jackie and older sister Robin are with me.
This is Halloween 1958 - I was a gypsy and Jackie was an inmate from Alcatraz. She was the hit of the night wearing my Dad's soccer shirt and the hat he got in San Fran as a souvenir.
I grew a LOT in 6th grade, all the way to 5'6" (look at those legs!). Here I am fishing with my sister Jackie and cousin John. (I have no idea who the other girl is)
My sister Robin and I thought we were gorgeous in our new bathing suits! And I was happy I'd grown taller than her. I think I'm almost 15 here and sis is 18.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
