Charlie Turns 18
Last Day of 12th Grade

25th Reunion

25 years ago, I graduated from college in central New Jersey, never thinking a double sawbuck and a fiver's worth of years later that, after living for several years but an hour or so from where I graduated, I would be back in Contra Costa County watching Charlie on the swing ("The Phoenix") and grateful when, as he went up the stairs to ride the giant slide behind children a head-and-a-half shorter than him, the grizzled carney handed me back the three tickets and said "God bless you."
