My mom was so proud of my sugar curl. She made it with a little bit of sugar every day.

This picture sat on my
Granny Brennan's dresser for as long as I can remember. It is my
brother, Billy and I when we were 2 and 3.

My favorite Childhood
picture taken on the front porch of our house in West Logan, West
Virginia. I was probably 4, Billy 3 and Rhonda 2. I used to sit in the
tree in the backyard and eat peaches. I remember a flood. My mom says
they carried us out of the house with the water coming up to the foot
of our beds. My Raggedy Andy doll died in that flood.

2nd. Grade...Mrs. Mabry

3rd. Grade. I remember
having this picture taken. My mom had tried to explain to me how to sit a
little angled to the side the morning of the pictures (classic picture
pose style). I misunderstood and when the photographer tried to pose me
I INSISTED that my mom wanted me to sit sideways. I refused to have my
picture taken any other way. I am not smiling because I thought that
my smile wouldn't show up in the picture anyway.

4th. Grade in my favorite
"Alice in Wonderland" dress. I ripped it on the giant gash in the
slicky slide. If people would see their kids on that slide today they
would have a heart attack but we figured out how to slide down in on the
side where the giant gash wasn't. We are probably lucky we weren't

5th. Grade - Mrs. Ferrell.
We used to play battling tops during recess. That was also the year
that the last Vietnam prisoner of war came home (officially). We got in
trouble for making P.O.S. signs. (prisoners of school)

6th. Grade. I was hard core into my book a day reading regimen.

8th. grade. I loved my new
bangs haircut but nobody taught me how to style them. I wanted WINGS! I
remember my 7th. grade music teacher telling me how much she liked my
new haircut. It did wonders for my self esteem...something I badly

9th. was horrible. I was an acne filled mess. I loved the outfit I'm's back in style now.

10th. grade. I loved high
school. I ran around with a group of girls and we called ourselves "the
slut club". Nothing could have been further from the truth but it was
our way of rebelling.

Senior Year for me. Billy was in the 10th grade and Rhonda in the 9th.

Beauty School 1985. I hated
it from the very first day but I had moved and everything before I
started it. I worked at it long enough to pay off my student loans and
never did it again.

1987 at my in-law's house in Jeffrey, West Virginia with my husband, Bobby.

Family reunion at Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Probably in the early 80's...with my husband, Bobby.

Vacation after a truck ran
over my foot in 1989. Some of you may remember a blog about the "Great
Crab Invasion". This is when that happened.

1993 - Bobby and I playing with our first litter of greyhound puppies

September 24, 1994. Our
13th. anniversary picture. If you had told me I would be leaving him
forever just 4 months later I would have found it hilarious. I left my
best friend behind forever that day.

1998 with Droid and her
mother, Queenie. I was so glad to take a picture with them but of
course my hair wouldn't "do right" that day.

Christmas 2003 with my dad, Bill Brennan and my granny, Elaine Brennan. He died in 2004 and she died in 2011.

2003 portrait with my mom. I
told her I wanted a picture of her for my birthday. At first she gave
me her usual answer, "when I lose the weight." I pointed out to her that
she had been "going to lose the weight" for my whole life and there
were no pictures of her. So she took the picture. It was a great
birthday present.

2008 or 09. Pam and Kathy horsing around at Fruth. We were hired on the same day in May 2000.
