"A Pennsylvania Trio"
An unusual type of Transportation.  
This is just a very strange card to me.
I am not sure what this is all about.
What makes it a Pennsylvania Trio?

Old Cape Cod,

I'm going back to the Cape;
Where salt waves greet the pine,
And battered sea hulks drape
Their arms in the ocean's brine.

Where glint of silver sail
Against a turquoise sea,
Or droning bell-buoy's wail
Hold a breath of ecstasy.

I'm going back again
Where tangy breezes blow,
And hark to fishermen
Tell tales of long ago.

Beside a weathered shack,
As waves salute the shore,
And gaunt trees stand forth black,
Cape Cod calls me once more.

Pitch your Tent

Sepia Saturday
This is Me at 7 & a half.  I do remember it being taken, vaguely.  My brother Jerry with his trusty Kodak Brownie made this snap on a Sunday morning before heading out to Sunday School.  We had spent Saturday playing in the back yard with the tent.  I don't remember if we camped in it or not.
