In this latest installment of “Once Upon Our Lives,” we’ve finally reached 1961, the year yours truly makes his appearance. Eighteen months later my little sister Stacey was born and our quintet of compadres was complete.
These were good years. Happy years.
We also indulged my mother’s love of animals. It seems like we were always playing with one sort of animal or another. Dogs, llamas, horses, donkeys, chickens, lambs, … it really didn’t seem to matter!
We made our home in Monument, New Mexico, just outside of Hobbs where I was born, but soon moved to Midland, Texas where we lived for the next 8 years.
Some of these photos bring back very good memories. I particularly like my Batman-themed 5th birthday!
These were freer times too. Honestly, who these days lets a 7-year old drive their boat with an outboard motor?
