God bless him that was a great segment on Del Ray. Also there was an article in the Post ages ago that said the Del Ray slogan was “every man a king” as we always had such a walkable neighborhood and dressed so well. The photo at left is me at Mount Vernon Elementary. we learned the Minuette. “Enjoy the Evening.”
