Holy Cow ! As Phil Rizzuto & my Dad often said. I grew up just up across the Oregon Road through the woods - appx 1/4 mile. There all the time, all year, rain, snow, shine, etc. Camped out, got sick, got punched in the face, oh so much fun. So, so many memories of childhood. Incredible memories. All good even if temporarily bad.

My cousin worked at Carvel Ice Cream while in High School. First time I heard of a Banana Barge! We took inner tire tube rides down Hollowbrook creek. Saw the Exorcist there for the first time as a teenager. Maybe sneaked in once or twice too. All good fun growing up in that area.
