Being of (mostly) German heritage thought I'd start everyone thinking of my birtrhday, which is next month. My mother is reaching her 89th birthday this month. Here's a shot of her and me before I became a "superstar"
This was taken circa 1945.on one of my first business trips (no Marriott hotels in existence at that time so we most likely stayed at a Howard Johnson's motel inn or unnamed cottages.) My Mom seems to think it was at the gardens at Penn State College (as it was known then) where in 1962 I started as a Freshman college student. First in that side of the family to go to college.
As you can see I was holding a pencil so that I could record my thoughts, or worse endanger my Mom's eye!
And I have not weighed this little or had so much hair since then!
