We must be spiritually connected!
1. Yes it is hard to explain to other kids why you have to roll back the carpets and scrub the floors before Daddy gets home for inspection. And Northern kids in the 60's didn't understand why our jeans were pressed and creased, our shirts tucked in and a good leather belt was around our waist. AND, absolutely no afros. . .not regulation. My brother's looked like mini marines all through the 60's and 70's! I took my braids out once, washed my hair, let it air dry and tried to make it look like Angela Davis before my mom got home from work. Let's just say I was in the brig for a LONG time for that one
2. My dad was a Navigator Bombadier in the Air Force in Korea He flew in B-52's which I took my kids to see at the new Air & Space Museum. It was amazing to see the kind of plane he flew in. His brother was in the Army in WWII and killed in the Battle of the Bulge.
2. White Water Rafting on the New River!!!! And the Youghigeny, I've been doing this since I was 12. . .we've probably passed each other on the river.
You brought back a lot of good memories,
