Summer time a long time ago
Vance and Travis fishing at Hastings Lake near Hastings, Ok., when I worked at the Duncan Banner. Shot with a twin-lens reflex camera. The lake was running dry and it was the town's water supply. It resulted in a rural water district. One boy still likes to fish. Travis avoids water.
