MY LIFE by HAROLD KNEELAND
FROM A MILKING STOOL TO THE
THE EARLY DAYS
During the early morning hours of July
31,1932 in the Johnson Memorial Hospital, Stafford Springs, Connecticut,
Harold Eugene Kneeland was born to Mary Alice Kneeland (nee Thompson) and
Harold Dewey Kneeland. I understand I was slightly ahead of my time as my
parents were married on April 5th of that year, but I was anxious to
get started on what was to become a very full and exciting life of LOVE,
CHALLENGES and ACHIEVEMENTS!
It was a GREAT day!! I was born a Leo and
have spent my life striving to meet the expectations of those born under this
astrological sign…compassionate, generous and a demonstrative leader. What a
challenge! Notwithstanding, the consensus of views expressed by the visitors to
my crib who assured me that I had all the arrogant traits necessary to become
an outstanding Leo!
ON THE WORLD!! ME, MY DAD, HIS DAD, HIS DADS’ MOM
After a brief exposure to life on the
“outside”, my mom and dad took me to our home in Storrs, Connecticut. Little did I know then that in a few short
years I would have to share my parents and my home with 4 siblings; 2 brothers
and 2 sisters.
Bill was born on August 6, 1933, Jacky on
August 7, 1935, Wayne
on July 3, 1936, and Sherrell was born on August 24, 1939.
