How I Spent the Summer of '68
I worked as a counselor in a summer camp near Mentone, Alabama. It was fun; my last howl before adulthood. Here's the camp song:
"We welcome you to Ponderosa,
We're mighty glad you're here!
We'll send the air reverberating,
With a mighty cheer!
We'll sing you in, we'll sing you out,
For you we'll raise a mighty shout!
Hail hail, the gang's all here,
And we welcome you to Ponderosa!"
A few years before I was operating a radiopositioning transmitter in Alaska alone. Being a counselor was more fun, with the kids and other counselors. Kudos to Mike and Charlie, admirable psychologists and camp co-directors.
