Reflections on my 67th Birthday

A Shot I took in Hawaii in 2012

Me with a few of my Bridgeman cousins, at the last family funeral I attended — Aunt Mary Lou’s — Carol and Jane are at the far left in front.

Me with the other neighborhood kids from Berkshire Avenue — I’m on the left, second row back. Jack Tepe is to my right. Behind me is Tommy Burgunder, a blind kid who played baseball with us.

With our Myers cousins in Mt. Jewitt, Pa. — circa 1962 or 1963. David’s hanging from the branch — I’m up in the tree.
