In the above picture, I must have been about 18 months. If the picture of my sisters is from the same time period, Margaret would be 9 and Betsy 5.
The picture of the Thompson girls including our mother Laura in Christmas robes was taken in December of 1952. Can you believe that anyone would actually choose the dark green wallpaper?
This picture from 1957 shows the three of us in front of our first family car. Our family did not own a car until the year that Margaret turned 16.
In this picture from 1970 Margaret is on the left. Betsy is in the middle. I am the pregnant lady on the right with the wrinkled collar.
In this picture from the early 80's, I am on the left. Margaret is the middle, and Betsy is on the right. Notice that I am no longer the littlest sister.
