"The Squid, Smooth and Green, Blues and Light Band" Plays Rock & Roll Tonight!

Jack H. Schick

I heard loud music. I was Downtown where West Broad Street’s one-way going east. The noise was coming from down by the Train Station. There still was regular train service in Quakertown back in the late Sixties. There apparently was some 'event' going on. I trotted down to see what was happening. A four-man rock-group was playing in the station parking lot. Standing in front of them was a six foot tall, silver...




Bing Limousin

The lecture was titled: ‘How I Became a Disney Artist’. I was hooked. When I was a kid-still am some say-I wanted to be Jiminy Cricket. Man, he could do everything: dance, sing, jump; clever, sense of humor and even figured how to breath underwater. As I turned out, I never became Jiminy. But, I did recently meet a Disney artist, Peter Childs, who drew and animated him. Sometimes I like to venture from my...


Remember September

Ella Camp

Give not entree to this darkness, wrought by hatred’s mortal sin- to rob our own September of what she’s always been. Lay no shadow on her sweetness brief- to dim the beauty of scarlet leaf- Liberate her unguent autumnal wine, from sorrow, tears and languished pine.

My mind has a thousand thoughts going round and around. One thought crosses out another, and I try to focus on one positive thing. This lasts about a minute! Next thing you know, I’m back on the treadmill again. Those thoughts of what is my daughter and two sons doing? They are all out of the house now, but I still worry. I think about them everyday.

Cruising to the City of the Future in Valencia, Spain

Its history also includes being the birthplace of three European kings and two Catholic Popes. However, for...



Children Crying, Wasting Away and Dying—It Can Stop

Steve Kovacs

Your son looks so innocent when he pets your dog and looks into its eyes. The innocence and love you see brings a tear to your eye. And those special times that he comes up to you to share some new excitement in his life and you notice that he’s so full of healthy vigor and hope—makes you beam. He loves watching new movies that come out too. And he loves fishing with his grandfather and just sitting around with his younger.

Can You Go Home Again?

Fran Larson

As my sister Jeanne and I approached the little town that we were born in, Cross City, Fl., my curiosity started to waken. Jeanne, being a few years older than I, excitedly told me she would point out where our house was, the depot where Daddy worked and even where we used to go swimming. My mind wandered to times when Grandma Neff would sit still while I combed her long grayish hair. Then she would sometimes ask me to play on the...
