Here are some reflections in the pond, on the edge of the Baxter's Woods, just off Forest Avenue. Growing up, it was always a neat place to hang out around during frog catchin' season. We'd grab our lunch, jump on our bikes and head to the ponds. We had a few choices. Sometimes, we'd head to the swamp at the end of Mayfield, seek an adventure in one of the many ponds at Evergreen or once in a while head here to see what we might find--- frogs, snakes, pollywogs, depending on the season. As you can tell, I had a little Huck Finn in me. As a matter of fact, the more times I read those 'adventures', the more I see myself and my friends in those pages. Looking at the water today, the surface actually looks about the same size, with maybe a few more lily pads. Time changes everything they say, but this pond remains basically the same. For me, it's sort of like a place where time forgot. Enjoy a piece of my world!
