Babe refers to a cousin, whom I got to know when I was a youngster: my first cousin once-removed, Gevena LePre.
Plus, Babe laments his inability to find anyplace to swim--and he remembers "the old times" at Crooked Path.
"I just finished by range firing today, and it was a lot of fun. I qualified as sharpshooter and missed expert by just 4 points."
