|My Mom pregnant with me at our first home in Mineral Springs, PA - 1941|
Haven't done a "Throwback Thursday" for a while. What with posting photos and videos of my trip to California and my leg injury, I thought posting a Throwback Thursday would be a welcome diversion.
This week's "Throwback Thursday" features me (of course) in about the earliest photo I could find of me. Specifically the summer of 1941. I was born in November of 1941. Looking at this picture of my Mother pregnant with me and the leaves on the trees behind her and the size of her belly, I estimate she was at least seven months pregnant.
My Mom was 17 years old when I was born. She ran off with my dad, a 21 year old North Carolina hillbilly transplanted to Pennsylvania when he was 10 years old, to get married.

And that was the start of the saga of my life folks. Some life. And it's not over yet.
