Every time I see red and white gingham my mind takes me back to the family picnics we had as a child. Whether it was at Bear Mountain, NY or Silver Lake, DE spreading that red and white tablecloth across a dirty wooden table meant a day filled with FOOD, FUN, and FAMILY!
One year a bunch of us kids got lost in Bear Mountain and we were scared to death that a real bear was going to eat us (child’s imagination running wild). We roamed around the woods for what seemed like hours, scared and arguing over which way was the right one back. Eventually we found our way and none of the adults seemed to miss us so we didn’t get into trouble and life was good again. Things got even better when we saw that red and white gingham tablecloth covered with FOOD – hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, corn on the cob, potato salad, chips, Kool-Aid, cookies and watermelon! We ate until we got sick and made a pact to never venture into the woods ever again – aaah more wonderful childhood memories!
