Mom & Kids, July 1961

I love this photo of a mom and her 3 boys. Of course you've got those posters in the background, so that's always a plus. But the fact that the kids are wearing nearly identical outfits cracks me up! Sure, one rebel is wearing a red sweatshirt rather than blue (obviously he's a commie!), but they've all got their plaid shorts, white sneakers and white sweat socks. Even mom has the same shoes and socks. There must have been a sale at JC Penney.

The warm July sun has forced the trio to shed their sweatshirts and celebrate their individuality. Wait a minute, that sounds like hippie talk! What's worse, hippies or commies? Anyway, I'll forgive them because they are having such a good time on Tom Sawyer Island.

Just a reminder that I am up in the mountains hunting grizzly bears with my bare hands... I look forward to responding to everybody's comments when I return on July 25!

All three kids look about the same age and height....fraternal triplets?

I see they arrived at the Park at 10:28 a.m. Couldn't they get there any earlier??? Oh wait, the Park didn't open early back in them thar days.

So you are hunting bears with your own hands, huh? Nice!

Posters are always a cool thing to see.

Aah, Tom Sawyer's Island.... what would I give now for an hour there, then?

Doesn't matter, cause I can't.

Thanks for the pic anyway.

Remember, Davy Crockett killed him a b'ar when he was only three. Keep your end up.

They're definitely commies - the red flag in the background is a dead giveaway.

That 2nd photo looks so wonderfully optimistic. It reminds me of the Goonies...They'll find that treasure and save their homes for sure!
