early 1970's memories

Anna wanted to see some pictures of when I was around the age of 5 and my Mom was quick to reply with these snap shots from the 1970's.

The above photo is from my third birthday party...just 2 weeks before I was to meet my younger brother for the first time.

My Mamaw told us more than once that playing in the fire would cause us to pee in the bed that night...I can now confirm she was mistaken and that's just another Mountain Myth.
