In September of 1951, I received my notice to go to Indianapolis for a draft physical. I decided I didn't want to go into the Army, so I joined the Marines. I went through boot camp from October 10th until December 10th, 1951. After completing this...

Dear Cousin,

 

A bouquet of water honeysuckle sits on my kitchen table, perfuming the room with the sweet, nostalgic fragrance of the past.

Hyperactive, and lived at fast -forward speed. ‑If you have had a hyperactive child you know the stress and self-doubt it puts you through as a mother.
