Born in 1942, Dallas Texas.
I love this early 1950s scene of downtown Dallas, but alas, when I was 4, we moved to Houston, TX
|Winter in 1949 gave Houston enough snow that cousin Claudette, myself, my sister and cousin Sandra got to play in the yard at my Gummy and Poppy's house on Brockton.|
Myself, my mother Mataley Rogers, and sister Mary in front of apartment on Cates Ave.
After maybe 3 years, we moved to another upstairs apartment. These were both within walking distance of The Principia, (on Page Blvd.) the school where mother worked and I attended from 3-12th grade. I even went 3 years at The Principia College, across the Mississippi in Elsah, IL. But let me go back to one home at a time.

Here I am with a snowman in the home my parents bought on St. Edumund Lane, in St. Ann, MO. This meant commuting to school and work.
After I graduated from Upper School and had one year of college completed, my family moved to another home near the new campus of Principia, on Clayton Rd, in Clayton, MO.
Mary, myself and mother, in front of the house that they had built for the family (almost without me.) I had a bedroom, which was also a guest room. My sister had the entire ground floor, with rec. room and private bath as well as bedroom.

After college I lived in several places. First I lived in Miami Springs, where I rented a tiny cottage behind another house while I was a stewardess for Pan American.
When I quit flying I moved to New Orleans, LA for a short while with my boy friend (soon to be husband).
|St; Phillip St, New Orleans, LA (efficiency above a bar!)|
Our next apartments were in Corpus Christi, Texas. We had 3 llittle one bedroom apartments while expecting our first son, and my husband's discharge from the Coast Guard. I don't have any pictures of them, but the first two were second story dwellings.
Then we moved near my husband's parents, in Hartford, CT.
I don't have any more to share with you at this time. Some of the homes I lived in were for just a month or two, and some for as much as 4 years. I don't think I ever lived anywhere longer than that!
I'm going to find some photos to share for the rest of the places (37 in all) where I've lived. These were just the first 21 years so far!
When I wake in the middle of the night and need help getting back to sleep, listing these places is better than counting sheep!
