Do you have a favorite memory from when you were growing up?

We went to the breach and stayed for a week every summer.
I have lots of great memories from that. My parents always took us out to eat and to concerts during the summers at the beach....great fun!

Something that happened when you were young that you really liked?

Dancing with my Dad.

Had a best friend that you did everything together with?

Sure. I had a few best friends during different times of my life that I did everything with. My two cousins Kristina & also Sue. When I was really young it was Katie Blake, then from 3-5th grade is was my neighbor Amanda. Then when we moved from 6th-10th grade it was Melissa. and 11th & 12th grade It was Kristen.

Did your parents take you somewhere very special?

Hampton Beach every summer, Martha's Vineyard, and once we took a trip to Hershey Park & PA Dutch.
Loads of fun, special memories.

Thanks for asking!

Hi Hugs!

On staying in touch with my friends...not so much.
Now my closest friends are my family members...Philip, my Dad, my sister, sil (Amy), cousin's Jill, Sue & Kristina.

My girl friends and I kind of drifted as we got older and moved away.

My only real close friend from highschool is Dyana. She's my oldest non-family member friend.

I have onther friend locally, and we have growing friendships...Gail & Kathleen.

It's a blessing to have so many special people in my life.

:o)

My cousins and I carried a rather large umbrella, the sort they used to use over tractors, this particular one is from a swather, anyways we drug it up to the top of the windmill and proceeded to jump off, thinking we were Mary Poppins or something....we could fly!!!!! No broken bones, but news to us, we couldn't fly.

Something that happened when you were young that you really liked?

Everything. I honestly had a fantastic childhood.

My cousins...they were like the siblings I never had.

Did your parents take you somewhere very special?

Yes...to my grandparents every summer.

Oh how fun, LOL
So glad no one was hurt though, whew!

Do you have a favorite memory from when you were growing up?

Ice skating on East Side Lake.
Riding my bike to Todd Park.
Swimming at the town pool (and walking barefoot to get there!)

Something that happened when you were young that you really liked?

Taking figure skating lessons.

Believe it or not, I had a best friend named Mary from 2nd grade until Jr High. (She got involved with drugs and that ended our friendship.) In high school I started hanging out with 2 other girls named Mary and one named Marie. (Mary is also my name.) I went to Catholic schools!

Did your parents take you somewhere very special?

We didn't have much money, but I loved visiting my grandma every summer. She lived on a farm and had 8 kids (my aunts and uncles...all grown and with kids of their own by the time we made our trips there). So when we'd visit there would be tons of cousins around!
