40 To 40 Day 2: On My Earliest Memories
I remember the morning we began the trek from PA to AZ. I was around 4. The boy who lived next door was Danny. I guess we got along ok, because I remember being very upset saying goodbye to him, and watching out the back window as we drove away.
I remember camping on those nights during the trip, and sitting in front of the campfire, worried that an ember was going to set me on fire. Once we were settled in AZ, I remember having to wait in the car with my baby sister while my stepfather picked up Mom from the hospital after my brother was born. She cried and cried. That was April of 1977, so I was just about to turn 5.
Those are my earliest memories. What are yours?
