Summer 1967

 

This photo of me and my best friend Kathy was taken in the summer of 1967 in Silver Lake, Michigan. We are sitting in a dune-buggy, wearing our matching Snoopy sweatshirts, and I am holding my mom’s chihuahua. 

This was the summer following my discovery that my parents were not my parents; the summer I had that horrible short haircut that made me look like a boy. 

I envied Kathy for being cute, petite, and blonde.  We were both just 12 years old at the time, almost 13.  On the cusp of so much.
