Murdo Girl…Pretty pitiful

I appreciate the value of each picture in my mind.

Real photos from the 50’s, are really hard to find.

Okay all those who lived in Murdo in the 50’s, can you guess who and where? I only missed one!

The 60’s brought changes that I wasn’t ready for.

In ’62 when Billy left, it rocked me to the core.

I slept in my sweater and stopped combing my hair.

He went to college in California, A whole world away.

The way I saw it, what he did was not okay.

I hung out at the swimming dam all by myself, Billy

He’s made up for it a million times, but I sure won’t admit it.

If he thinks I’ll quit complaining, he can just forget it.

California doesn’t look so glamorous, Billy!

Little sister and big brother seven plus years apart.

We have the exact same heritage, and he knows he has my heart.

    The one you probably didn’t recognize is Homer Anchutz, between Dan Parrish and Doc Murphy. Am I correct? I know the rest, too, but probably don’t have to prove it to you, right?

      Is that Elsa Peck on the couch next to the gold lamp? Didn’t know Homer Anschutz but did all the others. Also, is that Aunt Irma on far right with glasses?

      I’m embarrassed to admit this, 07, but I was told whose basement. But I can’t remember. I’m writing my last blog (for awhile) I plan to name everyone and I’ll ask about the basement!

        I’m just kidding you about the basement.
