I was cleaning out my closet today and found an envelope that had these documents inside. I thought it would be fun to share them with you!

Remember these old things? My mom would get them for us as soon as we were born. In the late 60's, when the Boston Bruins were winning the NHL Stanley Cup with Bobby Orr at the helm, I memorized my SS# by applying the corresponding Bruins player to each number on my card!

This is a record of my polio vaccines. I'm surprised that they were giving them as late as 1966.

Smallpox? Sure, why not! It looks like I got two in the same year; don't know what's up with that.

I had the polio drink we all stood in line and was given a tiny cup to drink. and Oh I remember the small pox shot. I had it in the summer so I could go to school in fall.

Amazing! I have a box with old stuff like that from my Mom too. Love it! :)

I tend to do that once in awhile and am amazed at some of things I find. I think it is great you still have these to reflect back on.

I still keep finding old stuff like that at my Mom's, and it always comes home with me. I recently found my report cards from high school. Freshman year was not my best! My favorite thing about this post though is that your maiden name is PINK!
