Short Stories

The first story (Afternoon at the Rocks) dates from my early days of growing up in the Fifties in my wonderful neighborhood near Lincoln Park in Chicago called Old Town where I went to LaSalle elementary school around the time this incident happened. It was a most memorable event that I still think of occasionally (rather wistfully). Perhaps I will be able to focus again someday on more of the rich time this was for me and my amazing friends. The second entry (The Red Dragonfly Chinese Candy Dish Caper) is a very recent (August, 2022) story addition about a fascinating encounter with a Red Dragonfly under somewhat unusual circumstances that I was able to photograph with the help of my impressive Sony Alpha 6500 camera (which is worth a story in itself).
