Yes, yes, I know the title is not spelled correctly but there is a very good reason for that.
My mom is in the process of moving and while packing she came across a bunch of stuff of mine that she has kept over the years. She decided that it was time for me to have it since I am an adult. She brought the bag of stuff over on the 4th but with everything going on I hadn't had a chance to look at it until last night when I couldn't sleep.
It was actually quit nice to sit on the bedroom floor with Dave and go through this stuff, some of which I had never seen and other things that brought back memories of my childhood. There was allot of the typical stuff in my bag, baby clothes, cards from my first birthday (I think there was only one card for a girl turning one that year because I had a bunch of them), 1st Valentines Day cards, awards from school, and school projects.
I've decided that some of my school projects, or at home projects would be fun to share with all of you so over the next month or more, depending on how brave I get, I will share something every Tuesday. I guess this is kind of like show and tell.
First up will be a series of articles I wrote for my pretend newspaper. I beg you to keep in mind that this was July of 1988 and I wasn't quite 7 yet, so please, PLEASE try to be kind.
Above is the copy I scanned in so you could see exactly how it looked. I would like to think that for a 6 year old it's pretty darn good. Now I am going to write word for word, letter for letter exactly what it says.
July 4, 1988
OVER COFIDET MAN SHOOT
Last night Mr. John Lowdemill was shoot at Linn Field. The police belive a man by the name of Bob Still shoot him. It seems Lowdemill and Still had an argument and Lowdemill ran of. When Still caught him he started pounding him in his face. After about 5-15 min Still pulled a gun out and shoot Lowdemill in the brain twice. By the time the police found him he was dead.
Bob Still has been sentenced life in jail.
This pitcher was taken 2 years before his death.
So there you have it, my first ever newspaper article. Next weeks will be Walt Disney World.
