Only 51 years ago

In a cottage on a Wisconsin lake, summer 1961.

Still cleaning out boxes in the garage and rediscovered a bunch of photos and negs. This is a Polaroid shot taken by my buddy Mark Rhodes in a cottage on a lake in Wisconsin during the summer of 1961.

Mark and I were high school bandmates – he played trombone – and we were in the marching, concert, pep, and dance bands. Mark died of cancer a couple of summers ago.

I was mostly just a “carrier” for the legendary Irvin Flora musical DNA. It manifested beautifully in my two sons.
