Indelible Moments 1968

Sometimes I can't remember what I came into the kitchen for, but I remember this certain day in January 1968. It's one of those indelible moments forever etched in memory. My brother, and I share our birthday and I remember wanting a gun, just something simple. I wanted to be able to play cowboys and indians with the neighbor boys.

This was our birth day. 
I remember opening the birthday present. 
Not a gun....but a gun and holster and cowboy hat and boots. YEEEE HAW.. 
My parents out- did themselves. 
Then the strange family next door brought over a gift. Frilly pink underwear- type things with poodles on them and very girly.

What I remember most that day was how happy I was with something so simple
Happiness is indelible. 
Whatever I've been through in life, I know how to be happy. 
And it always comes back to something so simple.

Oh, my gosh, is that an adorable photo or WHAT? The innocence of childhood as demonstrated by a topless cowgirl!
