Ellicott City


I keep thinking it’s just a bad dream, and then I realize it’s real again, and I just have to escape, and remember earlier times. In that world, Valmas Bros. Restaurant is on the corner, there are still four chimneys on the train station, “Mister Bob” is rolling out the awning on the Five & Dime, Mr. Eddie is flipping burgers, and I’m buying ice cream from the Zito Bros. Ahhhh. much better...
