Hear tell she spoke for me, so that I didn't need to speak until I was about three years old.
Even longer than THAT by some accounts. I remember that she & I used to watch TV together,
especially "Combat," and "Captain Kangaroo." Tammy was the great mold-breaker. Hers was always an expedition of discovery.
Minding what our big sister did gave the rest of us kids pointers on survival!
