Things I Miss Most About Pennsylvania Include. . .The DMV


Eight months ago my wife and I finally closed on the sale of our wonderful home on a nice acreage in the western Philadelphia suburbs, downsizing, close to where we began our marriage some 37 years ago to south Arlington, Virginia. It’s less than a mile from the townhouse we bought in 1985. And another bonus: we love living right on top of Civil War history.

For those of you who have cycled through (or, still live) in the Washington, DC area, especially northern Virginia, it’s considered a right of passage to live in historic Fairlington Villages. America’s largest apartment complex at the time was hurriedly built during World War II to accommodate military officers being cycled through the Pentagon for training.
