1966

Worked my first job in that building during Summer 1966 waiting to go to college in fall. I read all three Lord of the Rings books that summer. Library is two blocks away. I read four science fiction books a week - most they would let you take out - until I read them all.

Indian Orchard - still there

Wow! Thanks!

Indian Orchard

Still there, almost down to the utility pole location he stood against.
