Open the first photo album you can find — real or virtual, your call — and stop at the first picture of yourself you see there . Tell us the story of that photo.”
This looks like about 1980 or 1981. Great Falls, VA. I am the squirt in the front with the awesome green velour v-neck. I am the youngest of five. My sis on my left is the oldest. The three boys are in between. My dad is sporting the sideburns and beard. My mom isn’t really smiling. Who would blame her. We were a hand full.
I LOVED that house. I dream about it all the time. We moved there when I was ten in 1977 and I left for college in 1985. My parents moved clear across the country in 1987. And that’s a whole different story.
