These are my most cherished memories:
* singing Helen Reddy and The Carpenter songs on long road trips * Uncle Ed's Tic-Tac's * sitting by the fireplace on a cold, winter night * Burning my butt on the wall heater on cold mornings * baking 30 apple cakes to help pay my way to Ireland * the smell of shoe polish before a skating competition * the cracked ground of Holtville * dragging my little sister out to the laundry room for protection because we were convinced mom and dad had stuffed dead people in the old freezers * my dog Sunny walking me to and from the bus stop every day without fail * walking to Vienna Liquor * an ill-fated angry phone call to mom which resulted in 911 operators returning our call * Grandpa Herring's smoke, old record player, and cabbage sausage stir-fry * Grandma Rouland's nic-nacks * Trisha's anger when mom and I accidently let her birds fly away (truly was an accident!) * the nails in my ceiling * the piano being taped and locked after my only D in Algebra * endless colorguard, drama, and piano practices * Dad's whiskers and his reluctance to let anything green grown in our yard (it's called grass, Dad!) * Buttercup, the shetland pony * Mom's support, encouragement and occasional difficult advice to hear * all the kids living under one roof and the endless room changes that went with it * Lake Cachuma * Angel, the three legged and coolest darn cat ever! * pickle pops * the beauty of Midnight Mass at Trinity* ET on Christmas Eve * Girl Scout adventures and Church camp mayhem * playing dress up with old hula costumes and practicing my omi's and poi balls * and every single holiday spent around the huge kitchen table!
