My life in photos
( three months old)

     Little (fat) Jean-Paul, at Highland Lake in Winstead, CT., at the tender age of 3 months.  I have many nice memories of our cottage on the lake.  We used to spend part of the summers there when i was small.  There was no running water and when the well went dry we had to haul water from a spring.   I can remember how proud i was the first time i acutally went to the spring with the yoke and buckets and got water for the family.   I really felt like a "big boy" staggering under the weight of two buckets of water, hanging from the wooden carrying yoke.   I could not have been more than 4 or 5 years old at the time. This one of my earliest photos.
