Fifty Years is but a Half Century
I also recall events that are more than 50 years past: I Like Ike. The first television station in Montana (KFBB). A family birth (1949) and a the tragedy of a suicide in the family. The cleanup, the funeral.
I will never understand why certain events in my lifetime of 65 years stand out. Some memories are of very, very routine events and others were traumatic for a young kid. A fornicating dog, a rattlesnake chopped to pieces, a stillborn calf, a pet duck killed, a pet dog killed by a car. A new puppy. And four sisters being born.
I am working on my Memoirs. Something that a grandchild or great grandchild may enjoy in the future. I haven't decided whether to make an R-rated memoir or a PG. It will be honest, but may be incomplete.
