P.S. Sorry I was away for a bit, fighting with my computer.

  6. I'm very impressed. You knew that a boy's pants might fall down if he ran up a hill. I'm sure you could have had a career in men's fashion.

  11. Cute poems! It's great that you still have them! I'd love to dig out some of my old stuff. Except I think most of it is lost to time. And the trashcan.

  12. Fantastic comics! See? The talent was there. Incredibly, I still have a collection of stories I wrote back in the 70s (no, my characters didn't all wear platform shoes and polyester slacks). Plus, I have my 1st grade primer (no, it wasn't on a couple pieces of stone). What's more, I STILL have all my teeth.

  15. Fabulous! Although I'm pretty sure that at 12 I had no idea what a refried bean was.

  16. OMG, Robyn you rocked at 12. I am sure I would have wanted to be your friend!
    Isn't is so fun to look back! I found a journal from when I was 11. It was me mostly calling a certain friend a brat, lol ( she was too)
    Hope you have a wonderful day!
    Lots of love

  17. How amazing that you still have your writing from when you were a kid. That would have been lost forever. I have nothing like that and I bet I wrote some gripping (not) stuff. Aren't kids minds weird!

  18. All I know is - I wouldn't have wanted to be behind Mother Hubbard after she ate all those beans !

  19. A poet and an artist! You're amazing!

  20. Thank you, dear people. I am glad I thought to keep a few notebooks/albums from ancient times. Still, I can picture some of my art that was pretty darn good (better than I can do now) but ended up as landfill or something.

    It is fun looking back.

    Gigi, I called my friends much worse things than "brat" in my diary (just not to their faces, as they probably deserved).

    Keetha, it was probably due to the effects of HR PuffnStuff.

    I don't know why I was obsessed with refried beans. But kids have always been fixated on (sorry to say) passing gas. "Beans, beans, they're good for your heart. The more you eat, the more you..." I guess I'd just learned that one around age 12.

    Be well, friends.

  21. Beans are also a magical fruit. The more you eat 'em, the more you...well, you get the idea.

  27. Robyn, this is soooooooooo funny! I'll bet you had everyone in stitches when you were a kid. I'm glad you kept this. xo

  28. I love these sneak peaks into your sense of humor as a child. I wish I would have kept mine. This one's great.

  29. Thanks, everyone. I was a serious kid. Seriously. Guess I unleashed with pen in hand. Some things don't change too much.
    Happy weekend.

  30. Wow, I didn't think The Gap Band's lyrics could ever be dominated.

    "Jack and Jill went up the hill to have a little fun
    Stupid Jill forgot her pill and now they got a son"

    Your Jack and Jill poem has dominated The Gap Band.
