I remember being driven by my father in our car over a river ford in Rock Creek Park.
I remember making cinnamon Easter eggs in second grade at Lafayette Elementary School.
I remember climbing up small cliffs with roots hanging out of them and imagining that the cliff was a mountain.
I remember thinking a strange sink was a urinal in Junior high School.
I remember falling off a metal chain rope on a parking lot onto concrete when I was seven.
It really hurt.
I remember playing with Elizabeth Wansong at Lafayette. I remember her long pulled back hair and her smile.
I remember pretending my closet was a space ship.
I remember driving to a small amusement park or swimming pool, that my parent's expected to find, and when we got there it was totally gone.
I remember buying oatmeal cookies from a big barrel at Broad Branch Market.
I remember regularly buying a yellow bag of firm smallish tasty fresh chocolate chip cookies from Giant Food in the 1970's. They don't make them anymore.
Note:the river ford closed in 1996.
