    This is my mother and me near the cottage called “Sandy Hoof.” It’s a great pine cottage on the shores of Lake Michigan. We used to do a lot of digging in the sand and swimming there.

    We’re in Long Lake, which is in upstate New York and we always had a lot of fun there.

    The shot [above] is Venezuela. This was the most superb hotel I’ve ever been in in my life!

    Christmas, 1964, (above) I was in Venezuela with my family. We took a tourists’ tour through these great hotels. This was a great indoor-outdoor pool. From left, it’s my brothers Chris, Nick, my sister Annie and me.

    [Above], I think I look like a miniature prize fighter. We used to spend a day at a time at the beach, but I never terribly enjoyed it. I especially remember this time because my father came in by airplane and I’d never seen one.

    [Above], that’s my brother Nick and me with my dad in Germany. He was a lieutenant in the army.

    My grandmother thinks I look like a little Dutch boy in this picture. I think I look like Christian Nesmith. It was taken in Central Park and is one of grandma’s favorite photos.

    This bust of me was done when I was four years old and is now a minor art classic in Germany. It appears on German calendars regularly. I had to sit and pose for it and I didn’t care much for that, but even when I’d turn my head she would just work on the back of the head. Even when I was nine years old the bust looked older than I did. It’s now at my parents’ home in Saskatchewan, Canada.
