I joined the Girl Scouts while living in Tokyo. Our emblem badge was embroidered with the likeness of Mt. Fuji. I worked towards several badges but we didn't stay in Tokyo long enough for me to earn them.
In the early summer of 1953, we moved again. This time we moved to Camp Zama, which was located approximately 25 miles southwest of Tokyo. Camp Zama was an Army Post with military housing attatched. I was surprised to learn that the Pickle brothers were also living in Camp Zama.
Shortly after moving to Camp Zama, my Mother, sisters and brother all went to the base swimming pool, where we met the two Pickles and their mom. I hadn't seen the two Pickles since we had been on the ship together, about six months earlier, so I was glad to see them again, especially Pickle #1 who was still very good looking. Pickle #1 was cordial, but still not a bit interested in me. We swam together, and had fun, but there was nothing more.
A few weeks later, the two Pickles and their mom would go with our family to see a 3-D movie. We all went into the military movie theater, donned our 3-D glasses, and cheered for the heroes. Once again, Pickle #1 was nice to me, but only out of politeness. I decided it was time to give up on Pickle #1 and move on in life. I had no idea what was coming.
