A Sailor Went to Sea Sea Sea
Had the most memorable summers at Robin Hill Day Camp in Yonkers; it later became a condo development (was near Fort Hill Road and Jackson Avenue).
I remember songs from camp shows, and wonder how Harriett (who directed us) managed to come up with new ideas each year. “The newspapers shout it, there’s no doubt about it, the facts are incontestable. Banners are flying, there is no denying, New York is a summer festival.”
Bet that was about the 1964-65 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, Queens. Getting nostalgic. So back to the present.

It was raining on and off by the time I got to the bridge on the way to a meeting in Rockland yesterday morning. Visibility wasn’t bad; the distraction was the construction machinery jutting up beyond the westbound lanes, like giant sea monsters. Not on the ride back on the bridge’s south side.
Today I went to the Palisades Center with mom and thought I wouldn’t notice them. I did and so did she. Maybe I won’t notice them next time.
I’d like to know what you think.
