After Reunion, I went over to Del Ray (Alexandria), VA, to visit my Grandparents former home. I was into the past. The main street sure had changed.
And inside the Fairy Godmother Custard Shop, I sat down on a famous landmark and finished my custard. Now that I've been there, I wonder if they will re-paint the seat: "Bob sat here".
Bob and his daughters, the next generation
Pawpaw and his grandchildren, the NEXT, NEXT generation.
Few days later, I watched my grand daughter dance and sing in Joseph's Technicolor Dreamcoat in HER Jr Hi. with "Elvis". I tried to explain to her the REAL Elvis. Well ... you know.
