Check This Out...
If you read my birthday post, you know I didn't remember getting a baby brother because there was already a mess of us kids and another one was kind of like 'oh, well'. Do you remember my present I did remember? My BOOTS.
While scanning a bunch of older photos, I ran across this photo of me and my cousin Bonnie Rae coloring in the floor of our home and I had on my boots!! Of course I had to come back and share it. (Left Click on photo=Bigger)
And share Bonnie, too. She grew up in California, way too far to see very often back in the olden days, but we either drove out for a visit every few years or they came to Oklahoma every now and then. What is so special to me is that whenever we have gotten together... 4 or 5 times since she got married a bunch of years ago and moved to Vermont... It's like we just pick up where we left off.
I keep threatening to get my middle Bro to drive up there with me, but I think it'll have to be pretty soon because Bro's starting to drive like Stearns (our dad), looking at the birds and the trees, etc., etc., and I don't want to have to drive the whole way myself.
Bonnie will understand when she reads this because all of us kids and all of our cousins were terrorized at some point in their lives by Uncle's (to them) driving. Any time any of us got our license to drive, dad got booted out from under the wheel. So I'm going to have to shoot for this late summer/early fall. I need a Bonnie fix... It's been way too long.
All us Okies have sure missed you Cuz.
