    attended 9 different schools, in 4 different states, before I started HS.

    I also read voraciously, designed clothes for my paper dolls (the only kind of dolls I ever liked; my favorite was one of Mitzi Gaynor), loved Maverick, and writing.

    However, it is your last paragraph that fits me to T!

    •  Was your family military? (0+ / 0-)

      We moved when Dad changed job--and once just because he wanted a bigger house with a pool (practically a necessity in South Miami when you live inland far from a beach; I spent the years from 9-11 pruny from swimming).

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        for a chain of cotton gins so we were always relocating.  I actually went to 4 different schools in 4 different towns during the 2nd grade!

          and two different schools in 2nd grade.  I chose my Catholic high school because it was accessible from anywhere in the state of Connecticut.
