Editor's Note: Looks like a good old-fashioned "play date" for Rollie. It is funny to remember how much has changed in the world and that, unlike today, most of us didn't grow up having our parents schedule our play time with others; it was much more organic than that.
Funny that Allen and Nora would go up over Oak Hill to Frewsburg since it was not the most direct route. They were living on the Ivory Road and Oak Hill would have been in their backyard. Maybe they went down Bunce Road and cut across Wigren. Perhaps it was a pretty day and Nora wanted a different view.
