A Good Excercize In Memory...

March 1961
Living in the far northwest side of Chicago in a 3bdrm 1 1/2 bath house with parents, older brother, and a dog named Yankie, (but usually called Hank.) The house was built in 1949 as a 1 1/2 story one bedroom w/ loft. it saw a lot of changes as we lived there. I believe I was in kindergarten.
I remember many of the cars my parents owned, but I can't say what they were driving at the time.

March 1971
Still living in same house with parents and brother. Still a two car family. House now had 3/4 finished basement. We had a dog named Smokie, a cat named Teddy Bear and a guinea pig. Can't remember if it was Pig or Skunk Puppy.
I was a Freshman in High School.

March 1981
Living, again, in same house on NW side with recently widowed mother and husband#1. Had a dog named Susie, and cats Teddy Bear, Francher, Logan and Pheep. My Ma drove a Chevy Malibu and Husband#1 and I both drove beaters. I was working retail.
