Knickerbocker reunion 1976 part 2

On that trip to Minnesota we stayed at Uncle Bob and Aunt Lorraine’s house for a few days and then ended up at the lake with Uncle Bill ( William C. Knickerbocker 1907-1982) and Aunt Jess (Jessie E. Culshaw 1910-1989).  I remember there was a roller skating rink nearby and the jukebox ( yes, a jukebox) kept playing the song “Afternoon Delight” by the Starland Vocal Band. My stomach churns just thinking about that song.

Here’s a photo of the trailer at the lake.
