E1 -- Photo contributed by Don Dunkle


In the 1950s, one of our great summer pleasures was sitting in the cool metal chairs in the shade of the chokecherry trees, listening to conversation that flowed as lazily as the creek.  I still remember the twisted, double-trunked birch on the right side of this picture, and the way the brush along the stream bent southward from the sweep of the current.

At lower left is a corner of the hammock frame.  The first time I ever saw Aunt Marilyn, one sunny day in 1959, she was lying in this hammock in a white bathing suit.  Only ten years old at the time, I was amazed that this stunning beauty had come all the way from another state to visit us.
