    I am sorry I did not think of this a long time ago.
    Good idea; thank you. I don't think we went to the harbor often, since we lived seven miles south of Half Moon Bay, but our neighbor had the Abalone Shop there, so we must have gone some time.

    Great question!



    Annasmom- I just want to give you a big hug every time I read one of your posts.

    I can't imagine all these years of not knowing what happened to your daughter.

    I really think (and pray) that you will be reunited with her soon. I know it won't be easy, but I hope that you will be able to have some type of relationship with her.

    If I have ever wanted anyone on Websleuths to be right, it's you right now.

    Prayers!

    Me too Janet and I think that we are speaking for a lot of others here in saying so. I know it would make my Mother's Day happy too.

    Shapes and colors -- this is what she recalled from the bus. Exactly what I've experienced with others who have a trauma related blackout (and experienced myself). I would guess she might respond to the picture of the dog (can't remember how long the dog had been part of the family) -- favorite outfits -- if she had a coat, favorite shirt or pants or boots she might remember that with some questions. These things carry less risk than remembering people or events. Some evidence also now exists that shapes, colors and smells are stored as memories in another part of the brain. Flooring is often recalled -- a child is close to the floor, plays on the floor and the floor has a sound as well as a color and texture. The floor where my sister was killed is one of my only memories of that time but I can recall all the kitchen and bedroom floors of various houses since I was 3. Many others can do the same.

    I'm excited and praying daily. As a horse person I would say most kids have a riding experience with a non family person but the other things are very powerful for me -- especially the bus color and shape because that is so close to my own experience of what would likely be recalled.

    Hugs and blessings.

    One other quick note about the significance of the bus: after the trip was completed, the bus was parked on the farm for a period of time and served as a playhouse for Anna and her friends. This would be another reason why she may remember the bus.

    I guess it pays to know the right people.

    I recall that years ago my father's business was having some tax hassles and was having no luck in getting through to anyone who had the ability or desire to remedy the situation. One of his company's middle managers volunteered that he knew a woman from the tax agency who was in his square dance club. One quick call and the proper forms necessary to correct the problem were mailed out - problem solved because of square dancing!

    I'm glad to see that our elected representatives really do go out of the way for their people. I remember when my dad kept getting threatened by the city of Oakland for a parking ticket he never got. He'd never been in Oakland and kept trying to relate this to them, but they kept on with their threats. Pop got a hold of Rep. Robert Matsui's office and explained the situation to them... within days the city of Oakland sent a letter of apology to Pop and told him that the whole misunderstanding was dropped.

    It's great to see more out there that take care of their people!

    We are sending blessings your way, Annasmom! Dr. Doogie, you are the kind of friend that everyone needs, what a great guy you are! All this interest by the right people working on this is wonderful, it's good to hear that things are being done by politicians and others to really make progress on this.
    The 'bus description' gave me chills, we can hardly wait, but we are patient! Blessings to all this week!

    This is SO true Rideforfun. My sister has almost no memory of our youth, but the few things she does remember is flooring. Grandmas basement tile floor, the hardwood floors at our first house, and the green shag at the next.

    When we where young, my mom used to always wear "Youth Dew" perfume from Estee Lauder. It has been 30 years since I last smelled that. Then at Church (on Easter Sunday) I smelled it on an older lady. I immediately asked her if that was what she was wearing and she was shocked that I recognized it. She said it was from a very old bottle that she only uses for "special Occasions".

    I wonder if Annasmom had a favorite perfume or body lotion with an unmistakable sent. Would be interesting to secretly ask one of "C" friends to put something on that Annasmom or Joe Ford would have worn and then go see "C" and see if that would jog up a few memories.
