WOW! Where have the years gone? I remember when I was approaching 50 I thought it sounded soooo old and I would have been quite happy staying 49. But today I have reached the BIG 60! Yikes I can't believe my fingers actually typed that! Now if I could just get used to saying it! :)
I think this was the last cute picture that was ever taken of me! :)
I'm the cow girl and my OLDER sister was a gypsy.
Don't you just love that TV! Wonder what my mother had growing out of the bottom of it? LOL See the ceramic dog on top? My sister used to tell me it was a real dog and my mother had it bronzed! Remember back in the day when they used to bronze our baby shoes? In fact I still have mine. Like I ever believed that story anyway. I think even back then I knew the difference between ceramic and bronze and besides you couldn't bronze a dog! DUH! LOL
Couldn't resist showing you my baby shoes!
Do you see the parakeet on top of my head? That was my father's favorite bird named Billy.
I think back in those days there was only one style of glasses for poor kids like me. I started wearing glasses at the young age of four. My sister and I went to see Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea and we sat in the front row. The next day my eyes were swollen shut from eye strain. My parents thought I fell down all the time because I was clumsy but it was because I couldn't see! LOL Anyway my mother took me to the eye doctor and he determined I was very near sided not clumsy! :) All I can say is thank goodness for contact lenses when I was a sophomore in high school and later on laser eye surgery!
Thanks for visiting me on my 60th birthday! There's that number again! :( I imagine I will get used to it but I think it's going to take some practice. I was truly blessed with wonderful parents...I only wish they were here today to celebrate with me.
