I went to Dry-Kye form around 1950 to 1952 or so with
Dickie Kates, Butsy, Vernick, Salloway, Stoller, Tamulis, Kunians, Peter
Caroline (my neighbor here in Southern Arizona) etc.. Desmond, Sewall,
Abdullah were some of the cousellors. I didn't realize then that there
would be a camp reunion every three weeks!!
I will search for pictures to
accompany reminisces form those great times. Monster capgun fights were
great and might have prepared us for Korea and Viet Nam although I was a
non gun-toting Plastic Surgeon at 6th Army Headquarters at Fort Lewis,
Washington during the latter conflict.
The optional week after camp for
older kids provided some of the greatest memories such as Ben's tricking us
into believing that the short-wave radio in the kitchen was picking up a
Canadian Farting Contest live from the Great North Country. This was
especially difficult while we were having a supper in the Rec Hall of
turkey noodle soup. When I finally figured out what was coming over the
loudspeakers (double flutterblasts and freeps, etc..), I laughed so hard, a
noodle flew out my nose!! A unique experience, never duplicated!!
up-river were also unforgettable. More to come. Look forward to reading
In Ben we trusted,
