Remember how I told you I moved last month? We took our daughters to get ice cream twice yesterday. The first time, in our old neighborhood, was at an Italian-style gelato place, populated by yuppies and hipsters. The second, in the new one, was at a Lutheran church social, populated by senior citizens and post-senior citizens. That's the difference between my old neighborhood and my new one. And we had a good time at both places. Am I old yet?
