I've lived in the north Denver Metro area (town of Westminster) pretty much all my life. I was born in the small town of Norton KS, but when I was two I moved to Denver. The family wasn't to keen on the idea but I loaded them up and dragged them kicking and screaming all the way. I plotted my move for about a year in advance. Here is a picture of the young rebel shortly after he learned that the world was much bigger than his own back yard.

The family has gotten used to it here though I should say. They aren't mad at me anymore. ;D

Good grief, Curtis!  Talk about a little guy with a lot of clout!  Either that or the rest of your family is a bunch of wusses!

The photo is adorable.  Should we start a gallery of everyone at toddler age? That would be fun!

I had to load and unload the truck all by myself and it wasn't easy!

Note the dates on the pictures...LoL!

Special note. This pic: mom didn't run to save me right away. She ran to grab the camera. I remember this incident...I was stuck and she was laughing! :loveit:

That is an adorable photo Curtis. I can't see the date except for the November but I'm sure the pic isn't very old.
Glenna, since you and I are about the same age I bet we have luggage older than Curtis!

Mary, I probably have SOCKS older than Curtis, if he's the age he looks in his avatar.  But let's just keep that between the two of us, shall we?  I'll finally confess that the photos of the elderly woman in the Biloxi photos are really my grandmother.  I sent her in my stead so the team would be gentle on me (ha! She told me that ruse didn't work!)

I guess we'll have to try to enjoy the "I can't f**%&$!!ing see a thing" days, and the "my bones hurt like the devil; do you think we have weather coming in?" days, and the "don't make me laugh too hard; you know what happens!" days and just believe we're the age we are in our minds.  (I'm stuck at about 30 -- the best days of my life, and the year I met my beloved!)

I'll hang in there if you will!

Hugs,

Glenna

Jane, I was trying to figure out who Curtis resembles, and you just solved that for me.  I've been a fan of JD since 21 Jump Street. I'm sure Curtis will be thrilled to death to find out that two old gals think he resembles Mr. Depp.

So, if I wrote your biography along with mine, whaddaya think is it going to rain this weekend?  My fingers are aching!

Cheers,

Glenna


P.S. Hannie, I'll let Nana know you think she looks good.  Thanks on her behalf!  (Ironically, I actually look so much like my grandmother.  In one of the cat photos I posted there's a framed photo of her, and it freaks me out that I so resemble her.  I wish she were really here to do anything, even the Biloxi run!)

Please, no more rain or snow.  We have enough here for a while.
