    faerie rebecca: That’s me with my mother at Christmastime in 1958. I am holding my Lucy doll. (She and I were inseparable and yes, I still have her.) That was taken on the porch of a house we rented while our home (the one I live in now) was being built. My mouth was wide open, as you can see, which my sister always says was a) typical and b) a prediction of my eventual profession (lawyer). The light-up Santa hanging on the front of the house went up every single year — well into the 1980’s — until it disintegrated.

    I was just reading your profile. How impressive.
    I really enjoyed my visit to your blog.

    It’s National Oatmeal Month – have you had your oatmeal today?

  13. Love old photos – someone sure was happy, is that you?

  14. You look so pleased with Lucy! I’ve got just a couple of Christmas pictures of me when I was around that age. Both mine and yours look to be equally “antique” lol. I was born in ’58 and I swear that doll you’re holding looks very familiar lol!
    Thanks for visiting my WW today 🙂

    I love the fact that you live in your childhood home and still have the doll. I have many artifacts from my past as well.

    Thanks for visiting History Is Elementary.

  17. Well, doesn’t this beat all . . . I never heard of Lodi until two gals came down from there to work with me at a school for the deaf in Mexico. From what I understand it is a SMALL community. Nice to meet you, and if you know Ann and/or Katie say ‘Hi’ for me.
    (Just kidding, I don’t really think Lodi is THAT small!)

  18. Thanks for stopping by my place today. I’m looking forward to checking out more of your blog.

    Michelle: Well, I’m betting that Lodi has more than 1 Ann and I know several girls named Katy. 🙂 It’s not as small as it used to be, much to my disappointment. It’s really getting far too big and a lot of valuable farm land is being replaced with ugly houses. 🙁
