Now, finally: Chronological!

I wrote the several parts of "Pieces of my past" in a jumbled order that allowed me to jump around between eras. I came up with the specific order I'd write in after writing the first entry; as with choosing that particular place to start, I didn't worry too much about the order, other than it felt right and stimulating to write about. All in all, I'm glad I wrote this series of blog entries; they include some thoughts and details I'd never blogged about in my 13 years of blogging. And now, with my postings today, it's done. Want to read it in the order things happened? Here you go.

There was the Virginia Beach house I don't remember at all, followed by the first house I did remember, this one in Rancho Bernardo, on the north end of San Diego.
Then I had my first short stay, in Camarillo, CA of Ventura County.
A year-and-a-half after that move, we did the first cross-country move I actually remembered, to Virginia Beach.
Followed by another home in Virginia Beach.
Northern Virginia turned out to be about as humid as Southeastern Virginia, but in Vienna I simply, finally, adapted to that.
During junior high, we moved to Oakton, VA And, by our standards, stayed a while.
And, as I became an adult, I lived in three parts of Oregon: Eugene in the southern end of the Willamette Valley, Northeastern Oregon out where there are tumbleweed and Oregon Trail ruts, and the Portland area.

More to come, as I still think of other stuff that's blog-worthy...
