|Mom and Dad in the 40's|
By the time she reached her teen years, her father had stopped moving around so much and settled in Phoenix. Until then, she'd hopped freight trains with him, slept in hobo jungles and spent some wonderful months on relatives' farms in California. The stories she could tell! And still does.
Movies were big for Mom. Growing up, my sister and I would watch all the old movies with her on the Saturday afternoon matinee. They were new to us but Mom could sing along with all those old musicals. Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly, Carmen Miranda, Bing Crosby and the list goes on. Then there was Ava Gardner, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner, Grace Kelly, Tyrone Power, John Wayne...oh, jeez, make me stop.
In case you'd like to take advantage of Amazon's crazy price, the link is below. The paperback is priced lower than the eBook and I'm not sure how long this will last.
