Subject: RE: BS: Earliest memories
We'd attended a minstrel show in which my father acted. When we got home my brother and I wanted to be made up and dressed up so we could play "show." We were, with rouge and everything and big crepe-paper bow ties. I must have been around 3, my brother 2. Somewhere there a slide of this.

Another was when I locked my parents out of the house. I got in first and locked the door for a joke, then became too frightened of what was going to happen to my bottom when they DID get in. My father used a ladder to enter by by a seccond floor window -- suddenly there was someone behind me! I must have been around 4 at the most.

At five, I attended my father's funeral. I remember a lot of this, too.
