Remembering my 4th birthday

When I turned 4 years old in February of 1974, I received the following gifts:




  • a truck and cars from my aunt Kay, actually she’s my cousin
  • a gun, holster, and mask from my aunt Jackie, actually she’s also my cousin
  • a truck, pony trailer, and cake from my parents


  • four pennies and a card from Annabelle
  • candy and a dime and some gum from Mrs Kelley
  • the game Cootie (R) from the Harris family


  • and a card from Linda (possibly Miss Kreps?)

Why do I know all this?  Because my mom wrote it all down, of course!


This trip down memory lane was brought to you by my mom … with a little help from First Security Bank of Mackinaw Illinois!  Whose slogan was apparently “The sign of a good bank, with time for you”, which makes absolutely no sense!   🙂

Thanks for your interest!
