Pictures from the Past: Tricia

1966—Facts About Me

° We lived in Laredo, Texas, where my father did pilot training at Laredo Air Force Base.

° I was eight years old and in third grade.

° I have no memory of the gift I am holding. It’s most likely a Barbie tennis outfit.

° It’s morning, because I’m rockin’ some blue pajamas.

° Note the half-eaten candy cane in my right hand—probably why my lips are red. (Yes, my parents let me eat candy in the morning. It was Christmas!)

° First episode of the science fiction television series “Star Trek.”

° The Salvation Army celebrates 100 years.

° Hovercraft service begins over the English Channel.

° China under Chairman Mao launches China’s Cultural Revolution and begins purging intellectuals.
