It's been at least 50 years since I last stepped on the sands of Orchard Beach. Why today? My brother told me about a gathering of "old timers" from the south Bronx. There were about 40+ folks there. Aside from my brother...I only knew one other person. He caught me up on all those that are no longer with us...including his brother and sister....and a few of the "dudes" from the "block". Also got an earful about those who have been or are still incarcerated. Still glad I went.
