Growing Up

Due to my father's employment, I didn't grow up  in one "hometown." I had the fortune to live in different cities in the United States. Pennsylvania, being one of them, is popular for its history.  One can go to Philadelphia to experience the nation's birthplace or one can go to Amish country to sample shoo fly or whoopie pies.  In Maryland, there are many places to enjoy the ocean while swimming, crabbing, or sailing.  Sample crab, lobster, oysters, or clams at Phillips Seafood or see a variety of sea life in the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Virginia is also famous for its fishing and seafood. One can visit the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, Busch Gardens at Williamsburg, or take a trip to the Pentagon. One can enjoy sports events at RFK Stadium.  In El Paso, Texas, we enjoyed a weekly, Sunday ride to Juarez to shop, listen to music, or visit the Rio Grande. It is a beautiful city, surrounded by desert, purple mountains, and wonderful hot weather.
