We’re going back…waaaaayyy back…on the Romance Weekly Blog Hop today! Our challenge:
Describe your earliest memory.
My earliest memories are snippets of scenes, and who knows how valid they are. For example, I “remember” sitting in front of our television watching a tiny, battered capsule fall into the ocean. I would have been less than two at the time of the Apollo 11 mission, so it was more likely a splashdown from a later trip, but I like to think it was the very first one. I also remember staying in hospital where I ate at a tiny table in the hallway and slept in a plastic tent with moist air blowing in with such force I pretended it was an elephant’s trunk. My parents say I had croup often as a very young child but I’ve never asked them if I had to be hospitalized for it.
I can date few of my most vivid early memories until I started school. One that may have taken place before kindergarten is sitting on our front porch eating popcorn while watching a terrific thunderstorm. Another is when Santa Claus came to visit our house and I couldn’t believe he was really there—not because I didn’t believe in Santa Claus, but because how could he be in my house!!
What about you? What is your earliest memory? Then hop over to Leslie Hachtel to learn about hers!
