Amy Jo Maruschak

1. I had lived in 5 states! AZ, Co, FL, IN, and NM
2. I had 4 cavities because (according to my mom) my grandmother taught me to lick my finger, stick it in the sugar bowl and then lick the sugar off my finger! (Thanks Grandma! That was a lot of fun! And worth the cavities!)
3. I could out-pout any kids on the block. Bottom lip out and a perfect whine. (I can still do it, too, if provoked.)

Love this list!

1. I had lived in Missouri, Wyoming and Pennsylvania
2. I moved to Germany in the first group of military
dependents allowed after the end of WWII
3. That move was done on a ship still painted 100% in
horrible military khaki green and had NO "luxury"
anywhere. To a 4 yr old it was mind numbing.
4. I already had my second cocker spaniel, all named
Chipper, because we always had to leave them behind
when Dad transferred.
5. I had permed curly blond hair and everyone tried to
call me Shirley :-)

Great way to help bring back memories.
