This is a little trip back in time to my arrival on planet Earth. In the top photo:
My mom and dad just before they got married and shipped overseas to France. The woman standing just above my mom (who is seated) is my one remaining grandparent, my dad's mom.

Middle photo: my mom brings me home to their little house on the base in their white Volkswagen bug.

Bottom photo: my dad holds me on the step of my first home.

Wonderful stuff. These pics tell quite a story.

Your first home was at Ft. Hood?

My sympathies. I spent three miserable years in that place. Never been happier to leave anywhere.

Julia Smith said...

Mojo - LOL!! I spent all of three months there. My dad was finished his three years and we hightailed it back to Michigan, where I spent my next six years.

Sorry to hear about your unhappy time at Fort Hood. I'm sure my dad was happy to say 'see ya' when he left there, too.

I have a picture of my mother that looks a lot like the second one down.
