A blast from the past! From high school on, I was lucky to have good friends who liked singing good folk songs.

A few years before 2008, the late Anne Buck gathered some of her old photographs and sent them on to Henry "Kelly" Beller. In due time, Kelly had his son digitize them, and sent them on to me. Once they were aged properly, I prettied them up and now share them with our other friends, who may enjoy seeing a few of us as we were in 1959 and 1960.
