The creek ran through our backyard. We waded and chased tadpoles. We built a raft and sank it promptly. And in the winter, we skated our way into the Ice Capades.

We lived in this house in Kingston, Ontario, Canada from late summer 1965 to early summer 1966. We were a military family and moved almost every year.
I’m the precocious cutie second from the right; one-half of the “Little Kids”.
I was in Grade 3. Actually, I did Grade 3 & 4 in the same school year…
a little smartie-pants.You can tell by just lookin’ at me.
