One of my stranger clear memories is of breakfast. At home we often had scrambled eggs, toast, hot oatmeal, and occasionally pancakes and maple syrup. My mother always cooked for us, having food ready at each meal. As I have grown older and talked with other friends about what their homes were like, I have come to wonder at how consistently and well we ate.

While we became young and budding naturalists, we sometimes found snake skins on those nature hikes, a prize beyond belief, to be carefully taped into our notebooks. It was a rare occasion, but I found a snake skin, a nearly dry perfect one that was like parchment in its delicate thinness, and not from a big snake. It was a treasure. Once, the counselor found a snake skin that was large and patterned. He gave each of us a section of it about 2 inches long. That also was a prize. I wonder what became of those notebooks. They probably went the way of all the comic books I used to have that would have made me a bazillionaire had I hung on to them with their pristine condition.
