The Row House on Spring Street


My sister Lynn gave me the address to my father's home in Washington, DC. Here they lived for ten years while increasing their family from four to to seven! My sister Mary was friends with a Jewish neighbor boy, Ronnie Nessen.

When he came to play he would yell "Get the hell out here, Mary!"

He would later serve as press secretary to President Ford. And, to add to this wonderful bit of trivia, Nessen was the first political figure to host Saturday Night Live. His episode is also known for having Gerald Ford open the show with "Live From New York, It's Saturday Night!"
