Sunday Drives

I’ve mentioned before, I think, that I am the youngest sibling of 6. Having a family that large (or larger) wasn’t that uncommon when my parents first got married as it is these days, but the fact that my oldest sister is 20 years older than I - that was unusual then, and it still is. And most people who hear that say some version of “Your poor mother…” I just have to assume that they’re not referring to me, specifically. (Also, my oldest sister, Bonnie, was engaged before I was born. My brother-in-law has been in our family longer than I have!)
