I have lived quite a long time, not as old as some but a good deal older than many. I was born the 6th of 8 children in the hills of Southeastern Missouri. I have outlived 3 sisters and 2 brothers. They all died in their sixties except for one of my sisters who lived to be 73.
I grew up in a very poor family. Daddy moved us all (7 kids and mom) to Illinois when I was 3 years old. My youngest brother was my only sibling born in Illinois.
I am not sure where I am going with this blog. I will decide that as I go along. beth
