Stories about growing up in Bergen County, NJ in the 50's, and other stories by Skip Van Lenten
Sometimes, it feels like memories are all that are left of the good times when you reach a certain age. That's not always true, of course, but from the perspective of being older, the past can take on a magical hue that makes visiting it again and again something worth thinking about. For me, the magic doesn't end there. I like to write down my memories in as much detail as I can, reliving events as I go along, and then sharing them with my family and friends. Here are a handful of my favorites. I admit to going back and re-reading some of them myself now and then, just for the sake of remembering the good old days.
