What ever happened to Bill & Iris at the canteen? I remember walking over there along the lake to watch the most crummy movies on planet earth! But we loved it. The french fries. Oh they were so good. Cup after little cup of them, soaked with vinegar. And the walk back to the cove stumbling along, giggling and just being stupid little kids. Our flashlight going dim with each step until we arrived back at camp. My Nana would always be there waiting for me with a fresh batch of pop corn. With melted butter. What a beautiful little lake. I was probably 12-14 years old. Little did I know that in four or five years I would be in Vietnam spending many nights longing for that little lake. And those french fries!
