1. on the street where we lived






This afternoon, we took the journey back in timeā€”to a riverfront lunch and then to our first home, 19 Burns Road, Ashburne Hills. My father bought this house in 1957 for $14,000 with help from the GI bill; he put ten percent down.  My brother and I were born here, played in a sandbox out back, waited for my father to come home from his crazy hours at the Marcus Hook plant where, as a chemical engineer, he helped thwart fires, build a catalytic converter, and manage the flares on the stacks that are depicted here, behind him, as he drove. 

Some years have gone by since then, maybe a few.  But in so many ways, he hasn't changed a bit.

The owners were in.  They let us roam around.
