15. LS, you stole my childhood

The why's of why I feel cheated are too numerous to mention. Didn't even have a lot of religious junk - I had to memorize that from hearing it.

At 11 we moved into a house that had books in the bookcase - my very first experince with books and it was love at first sight. Robinson Crusoe will always be my best buddy...

In 4th grade, switched schools and the nuns "made" us go "way up" to the library thru the cemetary. What fun that was. Loved the books, the library and enjoyed doing book reports. My mother thought books were a waste of time and electricity.

Lex, you know how some guys don't like to talk about their war experiences. For some of us, it's childhood.
