Left to right: your blogger; my father, Peter Taylor; my sister, Katie Taylor.  In fictionalized form, Katie was featured in the story “Je Suis Perdu,” which was written probably a couple of years before this picture was taken (the story came out in 1958).  Absent from picture: my mother, Eleanor Ross Taylor (she didn’t swim).
