Where's Ally?

 When I was young, my family socialized and vacationed with two other families (the Grosses and Mayers). My parents were best friends with the parents in those families (Walter & Gertrude; Warren & Inge). Recently, at the urging of Warren's granddaughter, I called him up and chatted for an hour. Warren is 89 years old now but still healthy. His personality hasn't changed a bit. 

Here's a photo from our joint trip to Letchworth State Park in Western New York back around 1970. Can you pick me out?

























From left to right are: Walter, my brother Richard, my mother Barbara Jo, Warren, three Gross kids, me, Inge and Wendy (mother of the granddaughter).

  1. I was part of a similar group when I was young - we used to camp with several other families and I became close with a couple of the kids near my age. In fact, one of the boys and I had crushes on each other! The good ol' days.

  4. I knew which one was you right away - that sass transcends gender. :)

  5. Lol! I spotted you right off. Sheila had it right - the sassy hip tilt gives you away. So do the rad aviators.

  6. I spotted you right away, it was your smile and the cool aviators. We also had a family we met up with yearly and camped with in summer. We actually met them at the campground and my parents struck up a friendship and every year we always camped in the same place and reserved the same spots. We lost touch though as they lived several provinces away.
