Let’s start off 1979 with this charming photo of me (1) with Grandma Gleason (42) and Grandpa Gleason (44) on their 25th wedding anniversary.

My mom (22) and I are in the front yard of the Mitchell’s house. I think my parents still have that John Deere hat my mom is wearing. You can see the neighbor’s property across the road, which is where my mom took me when I busted my forehead a few months earlier.

Another photo of me before I realized how much I dislike chores. Notice my Christmas gifts in the background from the previous post.

All I can think when I see this picture is, “Draw me like one of your French girls.”

Clearly, I was determined to work with my dad someday.

I’m sure you’re not surprised to learn that I had a birthday in 1979.

Enjoying the best part of turning two—cake and ice cream. I still remember that plate. We had a few of them around as backups when I was a teenager. They just don’t make plastic plates like they used to.
