The Dynamite Club


this probably didn't intersect

with your childhood

but there was a kids' magazine
called Dynamite
circa 1977 or 8


the Hanley kids and I
started a Dynamite Club
known only to the four of us
(there were but three Hanley kids back then
Annabelle came later)


Evan, oldest Hanley, was the president
Sam, a year younger, the vice

I was the treasurer and secretary
and Julia (only 6 at the time)
a "Member In Good Standing"


I can't remember what we did
other than congratulate ourselves
on being members of a Dynamite Club
we all carried cards provided by the magazine
it must have been important


at the time

Sweet memory!

My friends and I had the D.I.M.B. club. If it isn't obvious: Danger Is My Business. We were adventurers.

I also recall a spy agency: the Boris Badenov club.
