Chimo and I went for first roadtrip of year to the Revolutionary battle site at the Star Fort in Ninety-Six. It is also the site of the first southern casualty in the war, which I didn't know before. The national park is pretty well kept, and they are finishing updates. We walked the loop and also a side trail. Was fascinated by the sunken road. I would like to have seen some archaeology underway and a museum. The weather was perfect, if not a little breezy. We were going to check out Newberry, where I held my first college teaching job, but at last moment decided to see Greenwood, where I had never been. Unfortunately their museum and art center closed at around one. On a Saturday? Weird. We had a nice southern lunch, which Chimo much enjoyed. Drove back home via Edgeville. We enjoyed driving, chatting, and listening to my song list.

JIMMY 1972

Here is a rather small shot of me at Camp Flaming Arrow (Florida) in my Scout uniform (Troop 68--Keystone Kampers). I still have the very light hair at this point. I was 12, my first time in a summer camp.
