These pictures are from the second-to-last week in June 2005. I did not see the bear; my father took the picture. I have never seen a bear at Allegany, although somebody else in my family always sees a bear. The deer, great blue heron, and (hairy?) woodpecker would not stay posed long enough for a portrait. Even though the mammal that visited our campsite each night was only five feet away from me, I still don't know whether it was a racoon or porcupine. There was a picnic bench in the way, and it was dark. I could have taken pictures of butterflies, for example, swallowtails around buttercups. I could have taken pictures of an interesting duck - presumably some sort of Merganser - but I was busy cutting wood. I did not check to see whether the Osprey nest on the outskirts of camp was occupied.

Some things I did with Jon and Ben:

My father's recipe is 1 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 egg, and 1 cup milk. Uncle Roger's recipe, which I prefer, is 1/2 cup flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 3 eggs, and 1/2 cup milk.

Billy told me his hair used to be shorter; it is growing back. Apparently before he had it shaved, he first had a mohawk to the surprise of Ron and Laurie.
