What's strange to me is that Prince George County when I was in Fairfax County at Fox Mill Elementary was a suburb on par with Herndon. It's weird how suburbs of DC can change so quickly. I was in Fairfax from 1975 - 1984. While '75 - '77 were spent in Falls Church (I have only one memory of this time, probably because I was born in '75), the rest were spent in Herndon.

I found a baby blue pair of Chucks at TJ Maxx. I was tempted, but I found those patent leather heels and they trumpted any Converse purchase. Oh the decisions.

Well, it depends on what part of Prince George's County you're talking about. Kettering Elementary is probably almost 80% black now, but it's still pretty middle-class. Inside the Beltway, though, the Hood remains in effect, particularly from the new Redskins stadium south. While the mall that replaced the Capital Center is more upscale by far than Hampton Mall -- they aren't even on the same planet, really -- the area between there and the D.C. line is still filled with "rough" patches.

This is so fun for me...trying to remember about DC and surrounding areas. Now you're making me want to go back and tour. Maybe I'll rent a car the next time I go to DC, just to check it out.
