52 Questions in 52 Weeks - Week 2

I ran across this challenge about a year ago and thought it was a marvelous idea... A year later... I never started it. Better late than never, right?

The whole idea is to tell your own story by answering one question a week. People that love ancestry love finding diaries, journals, and letters, because they tell about everyday life. Not just the big stuff, but the every day little stuff.

Week 2: When and where were you born? Describe your home, your neighborhood, and the town you grew up in.

I was born March 6, 1977 (yes, do the math... 40 right now). I was born at St. Mary's Hospital in Jefferson City, MO. It was snowing the day I was born and almost 80 the day they took me home. It was Sunday and my arrival was announced at church.

I don't remember the house we lived in until I was almost 3. This home I remember is where my Mom still lvess. It's a 4 sided red brick home, 3 bedroomm, 1 1/2 bath, full unfinished basement.

We lived about 2 milesout of town. We could see our neighbor's homes, but there wss space between us. Mom and Dad had 10 acros of land.

Town, Linn, MO, was small. We knew everyone and their family.
