In the pocket was a packet of photos. I used to send my film to York Photo and just the envelope was a bit of nostalgia. It was what I expected, mostly, pictures of my Wood Badge Patrol doing Scouty stuff.
But mixed in with them was this image. It was taken in the spring of 1993. Sean had been a Scout about a year. Mike and Luke were Bear Cubs. The azalea bush across the street is blooming, so it's early spring. I figure it was probably Scout Sunday and we were on our way to church and the annual Scout pancake breakfast.
That Oldsmobile is the car of their childhood. There are a lot of stories there, too.
It was long ago when I was younger and the answers all seemed clearer.
