Nostalgia

Please forgive another post about childhood writing.  You see, I'm packing to move AGAIN and have been coming across a lot of great old relics.

These letters came from Auntie Julie, who saved them and later sent me photocopies.  The first two are from when I first started to learn to read and write.  I was three.  (I was very smart.  Unfortunately I peaked at about eight.)


DAR [sic] JULIE
FROM 
TO JULIE
FROM KADY
JULIE
I LOVE
YOU
HOW
JULIE
JASON
IS
MY
BOYFREIND [sic]

Why on earth would I scribble out 'I LOVE YOU'?  Well I didn't.  See below.



KASEY
DID THAT
SCRIBBLE
I CRIED
SO MOM
HIT HER
BUT THATS
OOOK
YOU CAN
STILL
READ IT


Justice was served.  "I cried so mom hit her."



The next one is dated November 1984.  Seven years old.

Dear Julie,
I'm sorry I didn't write to your
letter.  School  School is great.
We're talking about camma's [sic] and conten(?)
I'm in batton [sic] and I'm in group 4 and I've
been in for a month month
I really miss you soooooooooooooo
so much I I realy [sic] miss you
sooooooooooooooooooooo much
There's a picture on the back
I got a cabbage patch
Named Ethen Nathanial!
Love Kady

The cabbage patch was actually Kasey's.  My dad found it in the dumpster at our apartment complex.  It was naked and had a noose around its neck.  My dad didn't bother to take the noose off before presenting it to Kasey.  We were over the moon.





Julie     November
Sorry I didn't write to you the other


"Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!"   Everybody gets boobs.  Except Julie.  Annie eyes.




This next one isn't dated, but judging by 'The Goonies' reference, it was 1985 and I was eight years old.
