|From St. Mark's School:
Attached are the only two semi-decent photos
of Brink from the 1974 St. Mark's yearbook.
The early 70s began the era when students
designed their own yearbook pages/entries,
and so no formal yearbook photos were taken.
On Brink's page there is only a photo pf him playing soccer,
taken from a distance, and you can't see his face.
His face in the soccer team photo is kind of pale and
washed out, and didn't scan very well.
We also hung out with the rest of the gang. As I had to bicycle to Quogue from the suburb of Quiogue, I was not part of the in crowd until I was accepted by Bobby, or at least, that is partly my perception, then and now.
When I rode the trains around Europe in the fall of 1977, I visited Bobby once in Switzerland and he came to visit me in Paris. We spent a huge amount of money to share a bottle of Champagne on the Champs-Elysee, but, we got to share the memory for four decades. On the great Hardenbergh European Vacation, we started with Bob & Christine in Albeuve. Swiss Air lost our luggage, so, all we had were huge T-Shirts that made us look like Red Cross evacuees.
more to come. I welcome stories from anyone.
