Of Time and the River

We are nearing a publication date, probably early 2006. Our goal is to honor our past by remembering the men and women and the events of that period, sufficient in number and diversity to join with A Gathering of Memories in leaving an authentic picture of that era.

In addition to the major concentration we are considering a look at what might be fun to incorporate in this new book: a brief segment listing words, phrases, and events that were once part of our daily experience, which have disappeared in this century (or are in the process of doing so).

Here are some samples: bulkheads, jitneys, fountain pens, beach wagons, knickers, honey wagons, clinkers, etc.
