Susan Donnelly My Young Aunts Have Lunch with Cary Grant Looking exactly as he always looks, except for the open-necked shirt, Grant pauses in mid-spoonful of iced fruit cocktail in silver dish to ask Priscilla a question. Her beautiful profile looks exactly, or almost, the same today. The year is 1947. She is twenty, wears a gardenia in her dark hair. The businessman beside her, with the natty breastpocket handkerchief, has probably arranged all this. A client of my grandfather? Behind them, at duller tables, everyone's watching the photographer, or the back of the movie star's head. Anne Marie, my younger aunt, disappears at the photograph's edge. That's all right. In about three days she'll have her own Western adventure: getting clawed on the arm when she offers a sandwich to a grizzly in Yellowstone Park. Capture the Flag I don't remember the game ever ending. Just the grey morning the day camp met in the barn, chose up teams, and we became scouts, spies, generals, foot soldiers. Don't remember either side keeping that rag of red calico, just leisurely hours of shouts, hand signals, dashes across tarry beach roads and the odd safety I felt being alone
