As a poor substitute for Rosie I converted some more slides, the last from Reel #4. All were taken at Cossayuna Lake in July 1962 - most were apparently taken on the same day.
The hammock was always a popular spot. Here are Karen and my Mom.
My Uncle Henry had a camp down the road so we spent a lot of time walking back and forth. I have the inner tube and Cousin Suzie is carrying a pile of towels.
Just about dead center between the two camps was Camp Albany - a boys' summer camp for kids from the city. For all of the girls in the family, upon reaching a certain age, Camp Albany was a real attraction - all boys, all the time, and located between the two camps so there was a perfectly good reason to parade up and down the road several times a day. The camp had movies every Friday night. It was bench seating, a small screen, and the film kept breaking but what a treat to see movies while we were on vacation. Karen, Freddie and I were recently talking about our years at Cossayuna and we all remembered the movies. Karen, a great resource for memories and memorabilia, found this old movie schedule - not sure from what year but it doesn't matter because they showed the same movies every year. Someone I showed this to wondered why they give both Eastern Standard Time and Daylight Savings Time - surely there was no time change between July and August.
Here's Freddie with our dog Rip who was about a year old that summer.
A rare picture of the entire family.
The family with Grammie Clas, my Dad's mother.
Freddie, Karen and me with Rip. Freddie would be almost 15, Karen close to 20 and I would have been 9 & 1/2.
I love this of Karen and I.
Cousin Johnny doing the dishes. I love this shot of the kitchen.
We got Rip when we were in Delmar. He and I were best friends. Don't you love the flip-flops I'm wearing - one thing that hasn't changed in all these years.
