To say I had an interesting childhood would be an understatement. I can say that I had a very fascinating childhood.
“I can say that I had a very fascinating childhood”
I said am a second daughter of four girls. No boys. My sisters and I used to claim that all of our friends were true friends, because we had no brothers for our friends to be attracted to, and try to get with through us. My sisters and I were very different. They were always very prim and proper. Me? I just wasn’t. I was wild, I was mischievous, I got into trouble all the time, in school, out of school, at home, but I was everybody’s favorite, because I was fun! My uncles, aunts, cousins, all the family–I was always their favorite, because they all thought I was hysterical. They all got quite a kick out of me making mischief.
I was born to a rather wealthy family in Mexico City, Mexico. I lived in what it would be like the Midwest of Mexico.
I was in the state of Guanajuato, which is adjacent to Guadalajara, and I lived in the city of Leon, which is the capital of the world of shoe manufacturing. I really lived there until I was 31, and married an American citizen of Irish descent, that’s where the McCarney name comes from. Although I moved around a lot as a child, I still claim Mexico City as my home.
