Boxes

Can we get a closeup of the boxes on the shelf above the blurry boy in the foreground?

HOT!

So, the guys are always commenting on the hot girls, well, here's turnabout!

The guy looking at the camera is HOT. With a face like that, he'd never want for a date in any period!

Too bad I missed him!

Interesting details

Like the wine bottle on the left of the picture! This is my kind of camp!

Hello muddah, hello faddah
Here I am at Camp Granada
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.
