...
Other than my son getting stuck in a tree when I last visted there in 1998
or so I have nothing but good memories of a simple light along a
beautiful stretch of the river ...

I can't wait to revisit

Soon enough, Tiny.....Time will go faster than you think.

Before you realize it, so many yesterdays will have gone by and you will wonder where they went.

But don't let us 'Oldsters' scare you, Tiny. You got tons of good times ahead.

I got Grandchildren your age & they're doing fine. So will you. :D

'Oldsters' are way more interesting than teenagers. And I can't climb trees anyway :wink:

Concerning trees, climbing can often be much more easily accomplished :) than the subsequent and necessary "un-climbing". :cry:
