Born in Plymouth, New Hampshire, Dec. 1950, my parents had a home laundry business. We moved to Lebanon, NH and lived in 5 different houses – I only remember the last one. In about 1955, we moved to Carlisle, PA and I started 1st grade; we moved to California where I finished 1st grade and started 2nd grade. We then moved to Texas and I finished 2nd grade and had 3rd grade in the same school.
Next stop, Austin, Texas where I attended 4th grade. For 5th grade, my parents wanted me in a different school. My father, now with a teaching degree, was hired to teach Russian and German in the Denver area – that was my 6th grade. I went to only one Junior high school. However my father was a teacher in the school I was attending – not good for me! I started High school but decided to change because I was carpooling with my family so I could stay with the kids I knew in junior high. The new school, in Evergreen, CO, was about 7 miles away instead of the 35 miles to the other school.
