Not so recent photo

Here's a pic of me as a kid. Mom sure dressed me up cute. Funny thing is as soon as I was old enough to pick out my own clothes, I wanted ripped up jeans. Oh yeah, I was crazy about cats even back then.

Pretty kitty Cuppa. I got some pics of my childhood kitty stored in a box upstairs somewhere. He was my best friend. My folks brought him home when I was about 10 and I grew up with him. Best friend I ever had. Got me through those difficult teenage years. He lived his last few years with DH and I after we were married at the tender age of 19. DH learned to love him too.

I'll have to go through those boxes to find those pics of him...

Apparently we had the latest in baby bathing accessories.
What was that Dex was saying about nudity? Lady Gaga got nothing on me!
And I'm sure there was a perfectly good explanation as to why my older brother and sister got to enjoy the picnic but I stayed strapped in the car seat!

And you had an Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, the ne plus ultra of 1960s family haulers!

Yeah, you could fry kids with the sunshine coming through that roof! My family also had a Vega, special ordered in a color that can only be properly described by calling it baby $hit yellow.

And hey--don't be dating me in the 1960s--I was born in late 1970! I'm sure it was secondhand, though.

I wanted one of those when I was kid but my Mom said they were not for girls so I had to sneak in my brother's room and play with his .
