While taking a break from the hustle and bustle of the NAWB conference, the Blogland figured it was time to chase the childhood days, so away we went, visiting two places I lived as a kid while my father was stationed in DC:
An apartment near Greenbelt, MD that has moved a little more upscale since I was a kid:
What had been Army-owned housing in the Maryland countryside after a first life as a missile test pad, but has since gone private and decidedly downhill. It's in an area called Croom, just a couple of miles up the road from Charles Town, which was once a village and the county seat of Prince George's County.
So you win some, you lose some. Still, it was nice to visit those places so many years later and see that I still recognized them.
