How did she get here? What's her story, her secret? How can it get any better than this? In order to answer these types of questions, I've included these photos of her, Katie Jean Arnold, which goes back to the eruption of Mount St. Helens (volcano mountain) on Sunday, the 18th of May, 1980, in Washington State (WA). My mother, Marilyn, saw the volcano fill the sky with ash clouds. Just 38 days later, mom gave birth to Katie in 1980, June 24, Tuesday, in Oregon. Katie has been a singer, dancer, world traveler, cook, waitress, comedian. She lived in Portland, OR. She went with her sister, Crystal, to New York City (NYC).
1980-07-05 Saturday - Katie Jean Arnold - 12 days old - in July of 1980 in Lake Oswego, Oregon, USA, with her parents, Marilyn Kathleen Mitchell, AKA M&M Morehead, and In A Heart Beat Donald Melvin Arnold (Rasp). Katie is wearing a number 32 baseball jersey shirt, it appears, in this picture. People wore short shorts in the 1970's and maybe even in the 1980's as well. This was back when Star Wars, Rambo, Hulk Hogan, Michael Jackson, & home computers, were very new.
