I am just going to say it..." today is me and Lou Lou's birthday and we are turning 48 years old". I really don't like the sound of that too much. It sounds so old compared to 44 even if they are four years apart because when you are 48 you might as well consider your self pretty much 50 and THAT does not sounds good at all! When you are 44 you are closer to 40 and that sounds pretty good to me right now because it is only 1 year away from your 30's. Now THAT sounds young. But then again 48 sounds a whole lot younger that 58 or even 68. So I guess I am a spring chicken. Yep, that sounds young to me for sure. Spring chicken!
A few years ago I was able to get a hold of our family slides and decided to scan them so I could put the photos on a cd for family members.
Here we are when we were 6 years old and in the first grade. These coats are so cute and look at those lunch pails. No plastic way back then. Metal all the way. I don't know which one I am . I thought I was in the blue, but then I think I am in the red. I could go back and forth all day. I just don't know.
We are sitting under a rattan porch covering so that is why the picture is so stripy. I am totally lost as to who is who. This picture along with the one below was taken at our house on Lakebird Dr. in Sunnyvale, CA. I have visited it a couple of times in the last few years and it is pretty much the same way. No real changes except for the price tag. I think my parents bought it for around $30,000.00 in the late 50's and it is worth well over $500,000.00 now. Craziness.
Here we are with our sister Susie. We must be about a year old I am guessing. I am on the right.....I think.
So Happy Birthday Lou Lou, my twin and best friend! Remember, when you and I are both settled in our houses this summer we are going to take a trip to Montana to shop and eat and have fun. I say let's stay overnight and live it up!
PS. I am on the right!!! No doubt about it.
