NW Okie's Journey

Houston, TX - Here it is another four years later and another "Leap Year!" This NW Okie was born four days before the 29th February, 1948. I know I was born early on that wintry morning in late February, 1948. My dad had to borrow a vehicle from a farm neighbor North of Waynoka, Oklahoma to get my mom to the hospital in Alva. Was it scheduled that way so I would not have the 29th of February as a birthdate?
