Pat Shingleton: That Splash is a Biggin
A Labor Day tradition was an invitation from Leonard "Dutch" Shultz. He had a backyard swimming pool and before episodes of Indian Summer, the day was usually hot. Guests contributed a variety of summertime recipes. Their adjacent yard provided additional space for related activities but the pool was the place-to-be. The Labor Day Party included a seasonal event that got everyone's attention in sight and sound. Dorothy "Dot" Biggins was a robust lady with a robust personality to match. When the pool was filled with kids and adults, Dot sped down the side of the pool, went airborne and performed the greatest "cannonball" ever witnessed. The sound was incredible, the splash enormous. Dutch kept a hose "at-the-ready" to refill the pool.
