This photo is dated 1948 and I have a new bicycle !! How could I be so lucky to get the doll I wanted for Christmas and a bicycle for my birthday all in the same year ?? My brother would say "Mom and Dad always did like you best !! " I'm sure my little brother and big sister received things they wanted, too, because Mom and Dad never believed in treating one child differently or better than the the other. Looking at the barn in this photo reminds me of the day my sis and I found some "baby kittens" in the haymow with no mother anywhere. We brought them up to the house to show Mom and she was aghast. We were reeking with "skunk" odor and we hadn't even noticed !!! We were stripped of our clothes and scrubbed down outdoors, then again, indoors in the basement laundry room. We did learn the difference between baby skunks and baby kittens that day !!
