quote:Originally posted by NewBillI have memories that because of the place they occur put me between 1 and 2 years of age. We lived near a train station in a small town. I must have got out of the yard one day and saw what at the time was something of a wonderment. There were men on a little service car that must have been driven by a single cylinder motor because it went putt putt putt as it went by. Because of the smell of the yards and the sound I thought the men on the car were farting. I don't know how I got there and don't recall getting captured again, but by the time I was 2 we had moved from that town.

quote:gary_lankford said: I have two memories from age two. I know I was two because they are both from the farm and we left the farm when I was still two.The first, I have a basket of eggs (I see myself, so I am narratizing) and I am running to my father (as if he just got home from work) when I fall. I suspect I thought I'd be in trouble. My parents have no memory of this incident, but the timing is right, eggs are usually gathered in the late afternoon or early evening and I did gather eggs.The second, I am lying in bed, there is a huge full moon shining through the window, and a big bird is flying against the window screen. I was deathly afraid of the neighbors guineas. If you know guineas, you know that they will attack a small child. My mother never could accept that the bird in the window was a guinea. It probably wasn't, but to my mind the only bird that would be trying to get me was a guinea. "The guineas they try to get me." I suspect that the light of the early night full moon seemed to illuminate a path for the birds flight, ended by the window screen in its path. My father says my bedroom window faced east.

A few years ago, I learned that one of those children turned out to be the girl I married and we had obviously met before without realsiing it.

quote:Originally posted by annemarie thompsoni remember back to when i was two and a half ( validated by the fact it was my brothers sixth birthday) i had pinched one of his fruit polo's and started choking on it. This then resulted in my grandad having to pick me up turn me upside down and whack me in the back to dislodge it. I have never to this day eaten another polo of any description.a thompson
I have many early childhood memories but the earliest I think was this.I remember my mothers face and me being in a pram of the old fashioned type with a big hood and 4 big wheels. I was sat up in the pram, which was parked by the side of a fence and on the other side of the fence was a railway line. My mother was pointing to a steam train approaching. I cant remember how old I was at the time and can only remember it in pictures and not with sound. Although it was a long time ago, maybe 1953, the pictures in my head are in colour and not black and white! And now a sad but funny memory from about 3-4 years old.We used to have a big garden and hedgehogs were frequent visitors. My mother always told me not to touch them as the were full of fleas so one day I discovered a hedgehog and decided to "deflea" it. I must have ignored what she said about touching it as the next thing I remember I had put it into a bucket full of disinfectant water! [:I]My mother had left the bucket outside after moping the kitchen floor.I'm not sure how long I had left the hedgehog in the bucket for but needless to say I didn't realise the poor thing could drown! The now, very still hedgehog was put back and when I looked the following day it had gone. I think it may have just held its breath..............cough!TMM
