Judy and me 1967
Judy had the best friends: Amelia and Brenda. I always wanted to tag along with them. They were always having such fun and seemed so worldly! Here we are when Judy was a first year teacher. She had the most fabulous car, an MGB, and, wasn't it British racing green? or Black? it was to die for. My sister was always one of the best teachers Walton County ever had. She has a natural talent for teaching.
When we were growing up, lots of times we would walk up town to the Kirkland Theatre to see a show, and Older Brother would run ahead of us on the way home and jump out to scare us! OH! My! How it worked. I wonder what happened to Mr. Kirkland. OB never scared him, as far as I know.
For one of the matinees, Lash LaRue was on stage. I had an autographed 8 x 10 glossary of him for the longest time.
I remember wanting to go to a horror show with my brothers and sisters and Mom saying that we/I would have nightmares. Well, she was right. I think it was about some watermelons that would split open and people would come out looking just like someone else. Then, of course, there was the Blob. Ah, Steve McQueen. That was really a great horror show.
