Subject: RE: BS: Earliest memories
My parents claim that I was too young to remember the two big pink pigs in their pen behind our farm house in Maine but they're wrong. I was all bundled up in my heavy coat and mittens and I found them quite fascinating. I must have been about two.

The next easy to date memory was the WW II Victory with Japan party some neighbors threw in August of 1945; I was three then and quite delighted with the cake and ice cream. I apparently did not notice the mixed emotions of the women there who were all working full-time at good jobs in the publishing industry and were soon to be laid off. But here's to cake and ice-cream!

Cheerily,
