Photo Reminder: Childhood Play Impacted Who I Am Today
As Published at: Ashland Daily Tidings
1953. I was Annie Oakley every chance I could fathom being her, even at 4 yrs. old. I felt strong, even as a scrawny, sickly little girl. My younger brother, Mark, 3, fancied Davey Crockett and Wild Bill Hickock. Outlaws didn’t have a chance!
Today I realize there is a FEELING inside my being that is a ‘quick draw’ on my determination, focus and hitting the bull’s eye with my goals. I wear a hat every day….most of the time a cowgirl hat decorated with feathers. I enjoy sticking a ‘feather in my hat’ for the feeling of accomplishment. Plus it is just plain ole fun.
Annie Oakley, thanks for the feeling of strength as a female you gave me at a very young age. It lives on….and so do you! Makes for awesome aging, keeping Annie alive inside! #morefunkicksat66
