Following Bob

Following Bob
A couple of you wanted to know what happened when the 3½-year-old me followed Bob into the main road. My sister, who was fifteen years older than me, chased after us and grabbed me as I stepped into the road. I vaguely remember a large vehicle but I suppose to a small child any vehicle seems large. When I was a child the roads were not as busy as they now are and vehicles were less powerful.

So, neither Bob nor I came to any harm and I’m sure the lesson of vigilance over small infants and larger dogs was reinforced by our ‘escape’.


The photo is of the five-year-old me squinting in the sun and not looking very different to the younger me, I suspect.

  2. I loved seeing this photo.
    And I'm so glad you and Bob weren't hurt. I'm a strong believer in big sisters being vigilant, as yours was.

  3. Look at your pretty hair! And what a sweet dress with the ruffles. I'm glad your sister was there to save you.

  4. That is a really cute photo.

    I was the older sister and often chased after my younger sisters. Fortunately the house we grew up in sat way back from the road.
