  1. How exciting to be related to Chuck Yeager!

  2. Wow, 2 pounds. You were very tiny!

  3. How sweet that you picked Frances Bavier.

  4. You need to tell us more about your birth – having a 2 pound baby had to be really scary for your parents. I loved the Osmonds when I was young!

    • My mom was sick for most of the pregnancy and was on bed rest for the last 4 months. She didn’t know she was having twins and so after the c-section when she woke up, she asked if she had a boy or girl and when my dad told her both she didn’t believe him. She’d fall back to sleep almost immediately because of the drugs they had her on, and so every time she woke up she’d ask the question again. Finally the drugs wore off and she realized she had had twins. My brother got to go home before I did because he weighed a few pounds more than I did.

  5. I love CCR and I’m jealous you saw The Jackson 5 and/or the Osmonds in concert.
    2 pounds! That is quite impressive for the times. That was a lot scarier than it is now.

  6. Interesting answers!

  7. Your first brush with death gave me chills.

    Sadly, my first movie memory is Texas Chainsaw Massacre because my dad took me to a double feature that included a Bruce Lee movie and Texas CM. As you can probably tell, he did not excel at parenting skills but he has passed on so I will stop there.

    • I’ve never seen Texas CM, but I did go to the drive in when I was 16 yrs. old with my boyfriend, my brother and his girlfriend, to see The Exorcist.
