A Year in the Life of Nordic Blue

Taking the lows with the highs

My prettiest dress ever, a neat ponytail,
 and a party to attend on a sunny day.
Richmond, California, 1959.

All too soon after...

...As a patient in Alta Bates Hospital (Berkeley, California),
 with a case of the croup.  After a scary ride to the hospital it was
 pretty lonely inside my oxygen tent the first night, and I was
 much happier when my parents came back to visit the next day.
 Of course, new toys didn't hurt, either.
