Even going to the dump was fun!

My grandparents were Mike and Bertha Elkin.  I spent many childhood summers at Elkin's Bungalows and enjoyed meeting the summer residents from Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.  

I loved walking "down street," our ping pong tournaments, talent shows, watching our mothers play canasta, swimming, and even riding in my grandfather's truck to the dump!

Recall your grandfather, Mike, had a blue pickup truck with a tarp cover.
He used to buy eggs at my family's farm ,Davis Poultry.

I lived in Moodus from 1947 to 1965 when I left for college.

Now I go to visit all the names I recall once a year at the
Jewish Cemetary in Moodus.
