"Sharing Memories 2012 (Week 1): First Childhood Memory"

My first real memory that was really seared in my mind was this little yard pool and leopard suit! I think I was about two years old.  For many years that memory was with me although not quite so vividly as it was later. Mostly it was the leopard swim suit that I did remember...I wonder why that in particular? I was a great fan of the Tarzan movies that were so popular in the late 1950's and early 60's and never missed going to see a flick with my cousin at the Saturday matinee. Maybe I was destined to be "Jane" at an early age!

Blacky and Cheri, taken about 1954

"Jane"...quite the fashion statement!
It was not until about 5 years ago when I started going through the hundreds of 35 mm slides that my Dad had taken that I came across these two old slides and digitized them. It was just as I remembered and the added bonus of the photos was that my first dog, Blacky, was in one of the pics and it is the best photo that I have to remember him by.  I treasure the memory and feel so lucky to have the photos that my Daddy took and can enjoy them so many years later.


  1. You were a cute "Jane." Blacky was such a special dog!!
