Summer Picnic

The back of the picture is hand-dated as July 15, 1955.  At some point that afternoon at Heckscher State Park, Long Island, I spotted a rabbit.  That was a pretty big deal for someone from Brooklyn.  I think I vaguely remember that my mother asked me to point and pose just afterward, cute as I had been, so that we could recreate the excitement for the camera.

I'd sure like to know what the t-shirt says...  Likely it's something or other about the Brooklyn Dodgers.  For Brooklyn, 1955 -- that was to be, finally, "Next Year."  

This is Next Year!
