Chuck Hinman: IJMA 102 - My Earliest Remembrance
Chuck Hinman, It's Just Me Again 102: My Earliest Remembrance
The next earlier Chuck Hinman Story: - IJMA 039 : School days bugaboos -- choosing up sides
By Chuck Hinman
Even though in my old age, my eyesight has "gone to pot," I am blessed with a remarkable memory of things that have been a part of my long and mostly happy life.
One of the things I enjoy doing as I sit in my recliner and daydream is to try to recall some of my earliest recollections. Try it sometime and then share it with someone.
Here's my earliest remembrance.
I was born on a farm a few miles northwest of Blue Springs, Nebraska. Mom had made a trip into Blue Springs in our 1920’s model Ford touring car. I was riding in the back seat probably with brother Bob. I was 4 or 5 years old.
I was standing on the floor in the back seat looking out the window when the door suddenly opened and dumped me out on the street in front of the Blue Springs State Bank.
Fortunately, the car was going slow enough I wasn't hurt and hit the street running after Mom screaming my guts out.
Mom did not know she had lost a back seat passenger until an oncoming car got her attention and stopped her. I suspect she was shocked.
I always suspected that brother Bob sat silently hoping I wouldn't find my way home like a dog.
