Stinky sliced a bit of liver from a stash in his mom’s old Tupperware container, put it on the hook, cast it out, and, wham, another trout. There were times, I swear that Stinky could put a hook in one of my old G. I. Joe dolls and catch a lunker.

Summer Time Reading

Ah, end of school and the living is easy, especially if you're a kid in the 1950s and 1960s and there are plenty of other kids in the neighborhood. There was always something to do and trouble to get into until the streetlights came on and it was time to go in.

I’m thankful for growing up in old Belleville. New Jersey, that is, not Belleville, Ontario, or Belleville, Illinois, or Belleville, Michigan, or Belleville, Kansas or even Belleville, Paris. I’m thankful for growing up in good old Belleville, New Jersey.

A few writings about the people in the city on the Lake

"I wasn’t more than five the night my father grabbed me with his vise-like hands on his jackhammer arms and swung me over the banister of our second story back porch. Swinging me side to side 20 feet above the concrete sidewalk, Dad and I were having fun. I was safe, safe from the world in his strong hands...."
