What strikes me the most about growing up was our innocence and safety. Some things I remember: Always having lots of playmates from all over the Hundred Pines neighborhood; walking to school, without parents, and down the railroad track; Judy Chambers and Eileen Harvey’s summer school; having milk delivered to the back door; Christmas at the Chambers’ house while we waited, holding sparklers; swimming in the creek and mud fights; Julia and Sarah, the ladies who watched my brother, me and the Chambers’ kids. I had a wonderful childhood.
