I have a vivid memory of finding and giving water to a stray golden retriever when I was 2...I also remember crying when the animal control people came to take him away...
That is the farthest back I remember.
It seems odd that my oldest memory is so vivid, but I remember it like it was yesterday.

I remember meeting this egg while swimming in a dark alley...ok, not really.
I do recall a memory of my grandmother putting an ugly rubber mask on and sneaking up on me upstairs in her house. It terrified me and I ran down stairs and into the kitchen screaming bloody murder the whole time. I don't know how old I was, but I'm sure it was the youngest memory because all other memories largely link together and I have a perspective of their appox. time. But that one I can't place and I think the memory was burned in my brain due to the shear terror I experienced. I picture exactly what I saw for about 10 seconds that horrible moment. I don't remember what I was doing prior, not what I did after, but I'm sure granny felt bad gave me some lovin'.

2 years old? Damn! I can't even remember when I last had chicken for dinner....
lmao, maybe you are vegetarian .
I can remember a giant thunderstorm when I lived in Holland, I was 1 year old. In fact I can remember alot about when I lived in Holland, and I lived there until I was 2 (I can remember the house, the way to the shops from the house, some family friends, the car we had, some of the holidays we went on, some bday parties, some fights with my brother, all before I was 2 1/2).
I can also remember Leiden, Noordwijk, Lisse, Keukenhof and the journey to Den Haag and finally the airport when we moved to Manchester. Then I remember arriving in Manchester and then living at our grandparents.
Alot! Shame I can't rmemeber anything about last week.

I can remember my mum talking to another person on the high street, mum said 'how are you getting on with the new money?'
So a reference to the UK switchover to decimal currency, which would have been when I was 4.
I can also remember the dog we had a bit earlier than that, he was a huge, friendly black creature to me, in fact he was a medium sized mongrel.
(Apparently he'd have a rubber bone in his mouth, and I'd pull it, and if that didn't work, prise his jaws open to get it, he never so much as growled, but I cannot really remember doing that).

I can remember a very little bit about a babysitter who watched me when I was 3 and 4 years old. There are much better memories of a nursery school I attended at age 5. Oddly enough, I remember almost nothing of first grade at age 6, just a few disconnected bits and pieces.
The first historical event I remember is JFK's assassination, which happened when I was 6 years old in first grade (obviously one of the aforementioned bits and pieces).

I'm not sure how old I was, but I remember my dad taking a photo of me when I had "eaten" blackberry and apple sauce but most of it had missed my mouth and had ended up everywhere else!! I can remember him and my mum laughing their heads off at me!
I also remember when my younger sister ate some cat food (she's lovely really!!!! LOL)
One of my nicest early memories is when I had chicken pox and the spots were itching me terribly. My dad gave me a big cuddle and made me forget about it!

I remember what I had for dinner a few nights ago but thats about it. J/K, i remember when I was only a few years old my first visit to an amusement park. Pretty lame since I wasn't able to go on the rides.
Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.
