My mother, originally from Germany, brought us overseas due to my father who was in the United States Army. I can not tell you what his rank was or pretty much any other detail about him because I honestly do not recall anything of the sort. I remember that at one point and time we lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

He would run after me pecking my clothes looking for god knows what and of course I would curl up into a ball begging it to leave me alone crying the whole time. My childhood has taught me many things on how to live. We seemed to make it though on the little money we had.
