Becky, Kathy, Me
Our yard had dandelions, white clover and crabgrass. My mom bought Popeye puffed cereal because it was the cheapest.
We sometimes ate corn meal mush for dinner and we never went on an overnight vacation. I wore my sister's pink seersucker sunsuits and red sandals.
Every week we would go to the open dump and I remember how the fire they kept there smelled like burning tires. My dad and I would often bring back items like old lawn mowers, telephones, and small appliances simply to tear them apart for fun.
