Mine too. Eastern Shore of Va.

My mom was just a baby. My grandmother was so sure she was going to die that she gave her baby to a cousin. Fortunately she recovered and my mom grew up with a mother and father.

Yes. We weren't allowed to swim anymore in the State Park with the Cypress tree pond.

I was born in 1949 and remember getting the Salk shot, 2nd grade, I think. We also couldn’t play in the rainwater in the ditch before that. I remember the kids who had to walk with braces and how the vaccine wiped out those fears. I also remember that everyone had to take it. This is why the younger people can think of it as ancient history. We thought we’d seen the last of measles, too

Good job, jberryhill. I thought it was anger at the German girl who dropped the baton

I got to hear Bishop Desmond Tutu speak

At a press conference before an awards event where he was being honored. A small man in physical stature, but a moral giant. He had a humorous, but elegant way with words. He talked about the South African government invented the nonsense classification of “Foreign Native”. He let that sink in as the assembled group chuckled. I’ll never forget him.

I second that emotion.
