Them that asks, gets!

Ipodmama took the time to ask some questions in the comments section, so here are the answers! And in the process you shall learn a bit more about my little tangled self.

"from where in CA are you all from?"
Well, we need to go back a bit in time. Ok, not a bit, many decades! My dad was an Army man, so I was an Army brat and moved around, ALOT! I was born on the coast of California, and then we spent the next few years in Europe, mostly in Italy. I came to Central California just in time to go to Kindergarten with an Italian accent. Then we moved to Georgia, ( I lived in Georgia when MLK was killed, on my birthday no less!) My parents divorced and my mom went home to the Rez, (reservation) to her parents. After living there a year, we were relocated by the BIA Relocation Program to California, San Jose to be exact. The BIA relocation program was an attempt to get the Indians off the reservation and into jobs in the cities. That is a whole 'nother post if you want to know how I feel about that! We moved from there after my mom was done with her computer school, (think giant mainframes and punchcards here people, this was the '60's!) to Sacramento where I lived from the time I was 10 until we moved to Utah 13 years ago.

"and may I put you on my list?" Thanks for asking, and after checking your site for any child porn or racist comments, yes you may!

"is your picture you as a wee one? and upon whose lap are you sitting?"
Yes that is me as a wee one. Cute little thing huh? That is my paternal grandfather, Old Bald Man. I have no idea why I put that picture up there, except perhaps it is because my father passed away a year or so ago and I feel like I don't know his side of the family well at all, and I worry that perhaps I will lose them, with my father gone.. I am seriously looking for another picture though, of just me. Perhaps I shall put some on as a post and let you guys decide which one I should use.
Thanks for the questions, it was fun to use it as a springboard to another post!

Oh I would love to hear more about what you think about what was done and is being done with the Native American pop. If there is more that we as americans can do to help..... or just raise our awarness. So much wrong has been done there..... and I have to say it pulls at my heart to think about it.

I would love to see more pictures of you tho' I think your signature pic' is very nice just the way it is.
