Brother Scott and I

in the first house my parents owned

in Mc Murray, PA

It cost them $11,000.

It was tiny.

I just googled and traveled up and down 

the road until I found it 60 years later.

Do you ever do that?

Those woods behind were my playground. 

There was an old maple tree back in there

that I climbed up into daily all summer long to read; 

wedging myself in so as not to fall out. 

Scott is 1 year and 1 day older than I.

My mom was married three months, 

became pregnant with Scott.

He was three months old 

when she became pregnant with me. 

The good old rhythm method was a major fail.

good thing for our sakes

Nice you found your old home where you lived as a child. Yes, in the 40s and 50s when I was growing up houses were mostly small as compared to what most people demand today.
