Yep, time to get back to the Memory Monday thingofamagig!
After my very short stay in San Diego, I was once again train-bound for Alabama.
It was a long, hot summer!
Me pregnant, alone all day long
I slept a lot.
Mama didn't have air-conditioning!
And, then I woke up one early morning with pains.
Little Linda Marie arrived, all healthy and beautiful.
A telegram was sent to her Daddy who was busy fighting war in Korea.
She was this age (3 1/2 months) the first time he saw her.
Yes, here I was again headed back to San Diego. I was getting to be quite the traveler by now
I had never been on a plane before.
Scared out of my wits to get out of my seat!
It was a long flight, needless to say.
I did have some interesting fellow passengers. Broderick Crawford sat across the aisle from me. I know, nobody knows who that is anymore. I'm older than mud so I remember. He was an actor and tv star, big burly guy.
And, Rory Calhoun and his wife Lita was farther back in the cabin.
Again, a very popular actor, handsome, too.
So, it's my first plane ride and my first actors.
Elbert met us at the airport. There were sailors everywhere! And, I just about walked right past him. He had a mustache!
The first and only time I might add.
It was gone the next morning.
I took care of that!
And, so we start our life as a family of three.
