What Were You Doing 35 Years Ago?

Today I find myself wondering, how in the heck did 35 years past so fast?

I remember August 16, 1977 just like it was yesterday, my mom was 9 months pregnant with my little brother, we were staying with my sister in Burleson in order for mom to be close to the hospital.  I can still see her sitting on the couch in this orange maternity dress with her feet propped up.  The Ice Cream Man was coming down the street, she sent me out to get her an ice cream, when I came back inside with her ice cream she was crying hysterically, Elvis Presley had died.

So much has changed in those 35 years, that baby (who was born on August 19, 1977) is now an Investigator for the Sheriff's Department, married with a 6 year old daughter and a new baby due in October.  I am now the Head Hag of Bags By Hags who still loves to listen to Elvis as I sew in my workshop. As for Mom, she now lives with me, I had to tell her what today was (bless her heart) she still loves ice cream, but thankfully there is no Ice Cream Truck out where I live, I am a little old to be running down the street waving money!  She gets her ice cream from the grocery store these days.  She still loves Elvis and that baby boy?  Heavens he is her favorite!

  1. Wow. It's hard to believe that it's been that long. But then again, when i think how old i am, it doesn't. I worked in a music store & a friend of mind worked in the record dept. in another store. He told me & i thought he was joking. Memories.
