Artist's Description

November 4, 1966 – I turned 10 years old. That’s me with my blue sailor dress and red socks. To the right is my best friend, still today, Kathy, though she’s still in Virginia. My little brother is to the left in his Batman sweatshirt. We got 2 channels on the tv at our house, until my brother became obsessed with Batman. We had to get the third channel offered back then b/c that channel carried the Batman and Robin show. He use to pin a towel around his neck and pretend it was a cape….dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna BATMAN! LOL. Not that I was any better. I use to pin a big packet of yarn to my head and pretend I was Jeanne of I Dream of Jeanne! That was “back in the day” when you made your own entertainment, lol. But my gang of friends here lived in front or in the back of our house and we had great times making that entertainment. We’d ride our bikes all over from morning to evening, having the best time. Making secret forts in the woods, racing on the bikes, playing ball, whatever we happened to come up with that day. It was so different then. As long as you were back by the time the streetlight was on, you were ok. And if you did something stupid, the parent nearest to where you were would call your mom and tell on you! No wonder we use to think Mom had eyes in the back of her head, lol. Awwwweee….those were the days! :) Karen
