The Gang: Mike, Sandy, Sharon, Bill, and Elaine.  This was probably 1950 and Mark would have been too young to be outside.  The dog was Skippy- a one woman dog (Mom's).  If Dad came home late, he wouldn't let him up the stairs until Mom said it was OK.  Sandy's family had a dog, Scratch, that was one mean SOB, who used to terrify me.

That's me about 5 years old.  The back of the photo has the caption "Bill at the Little Ferry".  I have a vague recollection of it - I think it was the ferry across the Susquehanna River that we used on our way to and from NYC to visit Dorsey & Pop.

Bill on his 5th birthday: New cowboy duds and all.  I think that's my old wagon behind my back.  Our old playhouse was in the front yard for many years until it was moved up by the barn.

"What an awesome picture -- but who is Mike? Elaine -..."

Back in my youth, I wanted to be a cowboy - I would listen to Gene Auntry and the Lone Ranger on the radio. Truth be told, I wouldn't mind being one today.
"I can't tell you why, but I seem to remember you this..."
"Wow. I thought for sure this was Greg when I saw it ..."

Mark on the road beside the dam.  Mark is proudly displaying the old pump action .22 that got his brother in hot water after he tested it after fixing it by firing at the pump house. All the fire hoses in it were ruined.
