My daughter, Jewely, gave me a book in which I fill in the blanks of my life. I thought I would blog about it instead for all my children to read.
I hope my readers will join me and comment about their own memories as I have fun remembering my life story.
1 Nephi 1: 1, 3 ...therefore I make a record of my proceedings in my days. And I know that the record which I make is true; and I make it with mine own hand; and I make it according to my knowledge.
^^That pretty much explains this blog.

Do You Have a Favorite Song?
I supposed one of my favorite songs is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." I loved "The Wizard of Oz" growing up as a child. It came on TV every February and we all couldn't wait. This was before VCRs and DVDs. You had to wait a whole year to see a movie you liked. They were only on once a year. I guess the royalties were too much for television stations to pay back then.
I always longed to see it in color. Finally, in 1968, we got a color TV. It was so exciting to start watching the movie in black and white, then, when Dorothy entered Oz, she walked out of her house and into COLOR!
But, I digress...
I have many favorite songs and songsters....the Beatles, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor...
As for hymns...
I love the hymn "I Believe in Christ." That hymn says it all.
If I had a number two hymn....hmmmm..."I Know That My Redeemer Lives."
I also like "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" and the song they sang in the Winona Ryder version of "Little Women," and I can't remember the name of it right now...where they sang at Meg's wedding in a circle. It'll come to me later...
