Just in case you missed my comment on my post for Saturday, September 22 (A Window Into the Past), Wayne is wearing the striped shirt, Stanley is wearing the white shirt, and I am sitting astride Wayne's pony "Beauty."
A commenter on that post asked, "Oh, to set your way-back machine to 1956, eh? Bet you'd go back in a heart beat--just for a little visit." No doubt about it...the mid-1950s on Ocracoke was a wonderful, magical time for a young boy. Just looking at the photo you can see that it was "Tom Sayer-ish." Life was simple and uncomplicated -- sandy lanes, no shoes, dungarees rolled up to our ankles, t-shirts (without corporate logos), and a pony without a saddle.
Life on Ocracoke is still good, if different.
