    • Between the time I was born
      My ninth birthday
      Were two agents in play
      Sort of put the wishin n hopin problem off of the map
      #1 We lived in 8 different houses in 6 different towns/cities
          Busy, busy, busy making friends and adventures.
      #2 At that time I was one of 11 children[baby brother Dan came later]
      Two of those houses were farm houses
          Cows, chickens, pigs, horses, cats, dogs
          All of which had babies
          Really regular
          Then there was pulling weeds, collecting eggs, pig slopping
          Ugh, school
          Didn't leave a lot to be desired
      But then I was nine
      I learned how to earn money doing farm work for others
      A kid with his own cash, rubles, shekels, pesos, yenom
      Is wall street's dream come true
      Of course I didn't invest
      Unless you might call
      Buying the clothes you want to wear
      Always having ice cream money,,,,,,,,,,,

      Comic books NEW
      Never looking back
