The Good Times

Just a side note to my "My Story" page...I know I left a lot of details out of my first 18 years, but it is so hard to remember everything as I write. (the whole time-line thing is tough and I remember things AFTER I have written) I may go back and add more details as I remember things, but I am trying to explain my life with AS more than anything else. Please know, there were a lot of GOOD things that happened during my childhood, too.

Memories with my Grandparents, spending summers in OC, MD at their beach house ~ helping on the boat ~ Operas ~ good food cooked by my Grandmother ~ times spent hiding in a corner listening to my Uncle play the piano ~ sneaking on my Uncles piano and getting in trouble ~ my cousins in Buffalo and times spent with them ~ my cousins in Williamstown, NJ and how much fun it was at my Aunt Theresa's house ~ my cousin, Katrina, who was like a sister (when we saw each other) ~ spending weekends with my brother and sister who, to this day, I love with all my heart ~ yearly Christmas Caroling with Sue, Kim, Kelly and others ~ mischief nights...running from the man who owned the Corvette after egging his car! ~ Halloweens in Berlin, NJ and the lady who, every year, invited us into her home and gave us Caramel Apples ~ Flyers games and going to the Coliseum to watch the Flyers practices with my brother ~ singing in the band "The Defiant Ones" with Dave, Chris and the gang...and getting to wear Yvette's cool spandex pants! (thanks Girl...I wouldn't have looked the part without you) ~ winning Battle of the Bands after singing my heart out pretending to be Pat Benatar and actually hitting the high notes ~ singing the National Anthem at a Redskins/Eagles game at the Vet (remember the Vet?) and watching the game from the Eagles side line on the field (THAT was cool) ~ Going to concerts at the Spectrum in Philly...AC/DC, INXS, Van Halen, David Lee Roth (solo), DIO (with my brother and his friends), Genesis, Yes, and so many more ~ Being completely silly with Cheryl & Gary who kept things fun and interesting in the HS Band Room...and so many more memories I can't possibly write them all...

All unforgettable times in the midst of some bad ones. Life wasn't all bad! Those of you who made it know who you are!
