It is almost March! There are lots of things going on in March for me, and I am looking forward to the next month of 2015. Typically, March is a windy month in Texas...as it is elsewhere, but after the erratic February weather that Texas Mother Nature has hurled at us, a little wind will be tolerable. I say that in a whisper so she won't get her panties in a wad and blow us off the planet.
Do you remember the last Leap Year on the calendar? I didn't so I looked it up. It was February 29, 2012. That means the next one will be February 29, 2016. That's right, it is next year, and it's on a Monday. Won't that be a day to start the week or one's life. I can't think if I know anyone born on Leap Year. Do you? Certainly no one in my immediate family has a February 29th birthday, and far as I have researched or noticed, none of my ancestors did either. But...March...now that is a different story.
From the photo of us on his 4th Birthday, you might assume there was several years difference in our age. Not so. We were 13 months and 6 days apart...except on Leap Year. I looked older than 5 in this picture. It's because I had longer legs than him. That turned out to be the case until we were 19 and 18. He shot up what seemed like...overnight!
You will see him in many of the 1950's photos I will be using for my AtoZ April Challenge where I will reveal my THEME for this year on March 23rd. As a regular reader here on CollectInTexas Gal, you already know that this will be my FOURTH year to participate in AtoZ. Doing so has given me the opportunity to write about my Family Tree, the Lone Star Quilting Bee and Fiction From Forgotten Fotos.
