"I got this a couple years ago, based off of my favorite camera, a Canon AE1 program. It was one of the most advanced of it's time. Not many people shoot film anymore, so I just carry that around as one of my favorite things."
"I loved living in the Caribbean. First of all, we have no humidity because it's an island with a breeze. We have no winter; we just have six months of sun, six months of rain. But I have family here in Easton, which is why I'm here. My son and my daughter-in-law. I miss everything. Food. The beaches. No snow."
"What's one thing you like about Easton?"
"I like everything about here. There are much more activities to do, being that I retired. I used to take care of the elderly, a CNA. Since I move here, I decide not to do that. Now I work at Crayola."
"I was probably about fourteen and every summer we would go up to my grandparents' cabin on a lake and I would stay there and work the bait shop. There was a group of us kids because the lake was only seasonal, so we all hung out together. A bunch of us got together and we went skinny dipping. It was probably my idea, to be honest with you."
I was in a Santa Claus suit two winters ago in a kayak under the Free Bridge, and flipped it to prove that I could be rescued by a rescue team in cold water.
"The craziest thing I ever done? I guess get on a horse that wasn't broke yet, back in the day when I was a young fella. I lived on a farm in Somerville, New Jersey and we got some brand new horses. The guy said, 'You can ride 'em in the morning.' Thirty-two horses, and in the next couple of weeks we got another couple horses, and he said, 'These horses ain't broke,' and wow! I had the ride of my life. It was like... I had never gone on a horse that wasn't broke, and when I got on that one, I got my ride. He went buckin' and carryin' on and jumpin' and buckin.' And he threw me off. But I got back on. This is when I was thirteen, fourteen. You just gotta stay on 'em."
"I go prospecting for gold with my granddaughters a couple times a year down in North Carolina out through Ohio, and it's just great fun. I've found about an ounce, maybe two, so far, and also some gemstones to go along with it."
"How did you get into this?"
"I was flipping the channels on TV a few years back and I seen this show called Gold Fever, from the Gold Prospectors Association of America and I thought I'd join it."
"I lost my mom--it's been a long time--2001, but I miss her all the time. When I get sad, I think of the last couple years of her life. We became really close. She was no longer working; she took care of my three sons when I was working. And I would spend time with her, cooking. Her baking--oh my God, she was a baker. Her cheesecake and her pies were amazing. Everybody loved them."
"I'm a cook for a nursing home. I cook for the patients, and I've been on my job for 38 years, started when I was 17 years old, and I've been there ever since. It's really fun being around the patients, talking to them. Sometimes they're lonely and they need somebody to talk to. They love that."
