Walking  Across The Frozen Lake  ~  Winter Of 1961

Stonelick Lake  Winter Of 1961

At Age 13
My Parents and I Visited The Lake, Entering From Cemetery Drive ( Edenton )

It Was Hard To Believe The Sight We Were Viewing, The Entire Lake Was Frozen !
Then My Farther Suggested We Walk Across The Lake From Cemetery Drive To The Beach Area

Learning At A Very Early Age,
That A Suggestion Was A Polite Way Of Giving An Order,  We Started Walking
Walking On The Ice Was Like a Loud, Amplified Version Of Kellogg's Rice Khrispies . . . SNAP / CRACKLE / POP
Fearing Each Step Would Be My Last, and Crying Like A Newborn Baby
We Completed Our Task
