Honeybear | This teddybear was given to me when I was still in my mother's belly. He's been across the country when we moved house, to the every sleepover, and still makes me feel better when times are tough.

1)Antique Piggy Bank (filled by my dad who died when I was 5 2)Mema (every GOOD time I remember was with her 3) Apple (I still love the jingle found this one in old abandon house)

Day 11 childhood memory...my greatest childhood memories had to be our summer trips to Disney! I  Disney! #wirennov2011 #wirennov2011_11 #wirennov2011_kc_asa

Day 11 - Childhood Memory: Grandpap came in the door from work, sauntered over to his favorite chair, and then yelled, "Who gets to take my boots off today?!" My sister and myself would come running. If our cousins were there too, it was a real race to see who had the privilege of taking off Grandpa's boots. If they had an unpleasant stench, I don't remember it. I'm sure they must have though. Grandpap worked long days for CalTrans (road work for the state of California). I spent much of my time at my grandparents' house as they lived next door to us. Grandpap kept me full of liverwurst sandwiches and ice cream. I can still hear him saying, "Goddammit." He used that word in so many different ways, I don't think it was a swearword to him. I was only six when he died. It's a shame in so many ways. I hear he was an excellent storyteller. I'd like to have heard about his time in the Navy. He served in both Korea and Vietnam. Grandpap, I miss you and I thank you for your service to our country. 

5 things about me.....here goes!

My feed already says Christian, wife and mother do I'll do things that are not easily put in a short bio.

1. This picture is for @wiren_challenges for #wirennov2011_11 a childhood memory. This horse was given to me by my father. He died when I was only 6 years old. I have very few memories of him and even less things that remind me of him. This horse is one of the things I know he picked out just for me. I hope it's never lost or destroyed. #wirennov2011 #wirennov2011_aubree42

2. I received my bachelors and masters degrees from OU. OU was actually my absolute last choice for college. I didn't want to be in huge classes with a zillion people and just be a number among many. After going to my first choice college that I dreamed of attending, that will remain anonymous, I absolutely hated it. So, I transferred and completely LOVED OU. Point being....do not count something out just because you think it will suck!

3. My mom remarried when I was in 8th grade. She had worked in the elem. school cafeteria while I was in elementary. Then when I got to go across town to middle school she got the middle school secretary job. Then in 8th grade when I'm about to go back across town to high school she marries the high school principal. So I never attended school without a parent working in my school....and watching my every move....and not being able to do or get away with anything.....

4. I work as a high school counselor. I love my job. I hate how much crap school counselors have to do. In short, 5% is counseling and 95% is paperwork and testing. Literally. But I love how the students keep me young at heart.

I was 5 when I moved to a small village called Histon on the edge of Cambridge. I spent the rest of my childhood in Histon which was also home to Chivers Jam. Fast Forward 30 years and I'm living in Hoboken, New Jersey when I found this perfect reminder of my childhood on eBay and had to have it. I've lived in the US for 12 years now but where you spent your childhood always keeps a hold on you. #wirennov2011 #wirennov2011_guydownes1967 #wirennov2011_11 #histon #cambridge #childhood
