This was taken back in 1970 in front of our fireplace when we lived on South Arlington Ridge Road in South Arlington, VA. After working on a ladder cleaning gutters for a couple hours this afternoon, I needed something to help me remember what it was like to be young. We lived in this house for 11 years and couldn’t have been in a more convenient place for the kids going to elementary and middle school. They were also able to catch a bus to go to Wakefield HS. It was convenient for Elaine and I to get down to the USDA Building and for my classes at George Washington University. We were only a block away from a shopping center where the kids had part time jobs and delivered newspapers. Those were very interesting years, but I’m pleased that we made the decision to come back to Nebraska; especially since Carolyn made the same decision.
