A Memory from 1978 in Rhode Island

It was 39 years ago, on a cold snowy winter day in Rhode Island. A photographer from a local newspaper, The Observer took a photo of my brother and I with three other kids in the neighborhood. It was a bitter cold day and we were waiting for the school bus. I remember the photographer asked us to "look cold". I fastened my knit scarf and lowered by Snoopy hat below my eyes and did as good a job as any ten year old kid could do. The result was this front page photo that ran on January 12, 1978. I am the little kid in the lower left, and my brother is behind me, top left. I still have the full copy of the edition, the pages are yellow and brittle, but it is a nice memory of my childhood.
