In 1985 I asked Santa for an Atari. I had played it at My uncle's house and some friend's houses. On Christmas morning, I received a Nintendo instead. I think I was initially disappointed because I had never heard of a Nintendo and I wanted an Atari. However, as soon as my dad hooked it up and started it, I was wowed. I remember playing Super Mario brothers and remembering that this was the arcade game I played last time we went to Florida. I distinctly remember dying on the first mushroom when I played for the first time.

My dad went all out, buying the deluxe package for the Nintendo. It contained R.O.B. the robot with the game "Gyromite", the gun with "Hogan's Alley" and "Duck Hunt" and two controllers and "Super Mario Brothers". You just can't buy a package that cool anymore. I was instantly hooked and I am still a gamer to this day.

I remember that we were the first people I knew to have a Nintendo and my friends wanted to come over to play it all the time. Way to go Dad!

My friend, Lynn, had a slumber party for her 6th birthday and invited a bunch of girls that I didn't know. 

We had a lot of fun playing with "Jem" dolls and watching cartoons, but the fun soon ended.   Two girls were putting on makeup in the other room.  I remember they looked really silly, and I told them that they looked even prettier without makeup on.  That was a very stupid thing to say, but I didn't realize that at the time. 

Anyway, they chased me around the house and made fun of me.  I remember it was really late at night.  I decided that I was going to walk home
, since it was only a block away.   But the girls kept getting in front of the door.  They wouldn't let me out.

Lynn's father woke up and scolded the girls.  He told me that it was WAY too late for me to go home.  So I, reluctantly, stayed the night.

The girls decided to spread a really nasty rumor about me.  When the next school year

From (Growing up Through Elementary School)
Original Memory Interview Question

What do you remember about the first few years of elementary school?


His Response:

I remember a kid named Lenny. He lived off of Hendricks. I went to Burt Elementary School with him in kindergarten only. After kindergarten we moved to Clarkston where I went to Pine Knob Elementary School. I remember seeing Lenny once after I moved when I went to Dan and Dave's house just down the street. I don't remember much about our encounter except his brown fence for some reason. I remember that I met Jim Falk on the first day of First Grade and we have been friends ever since. The funny thing is that Jim kind of reminded me of Lenny.
