Picture of me

I will have to find the original picture, but it was taken when I was 7, I believe (1975). It was Christmas morning, and my Dad had just given me a parakeet. It was the last present to be given, it was the biggest, and it was mine!! I was so happy. Well, Madison has a picture when she was two, and she looks so much like me. Hers was taken at JCP for a sitting, but the hair and the smile look so familiar. The eyes, however, are Daddy's! It is so funny to see the two pictures side by side.

Childhood Friend

I have several childhood friends that I don't really keep into contact with, but I know where they are. My twin brother, Jeff, actually has better luck keeping in contact, so it is because of him that I sorta know where they are and what they are doing. I have one high school friend that has been faithful to write me, and I have GOT to write her back. She is really the one that I want to make sure to keep in touch with...her name is Tina. Tina was so much fun to be around - we were "the quiet ones" but we caused so much trouble. I will never forget yearbook class & the throwing the pencil out the window incident. Too funny - I never laughed so much!! Tina, I promise I will write you!

What is my earliest memory? Why has it stayed with me?

Again, another question that makes me think...
I think my earliest memory is of flying on a plane when I was 5 years old. I remember getting this little "wing" pin to wear, and I was so proud of them. I don't remember much else about it, other than holding someone's hand (come to find out later, it was my sister's).
I have some other memories that seem early, but I am not sure of the timeline on those, but I think this is the earliest. I think it has stayed with me because it was so exciting at the time. I think I felt really special then, and so I remember it.
