Atlantic City

“Everything dies baby, that’s a fact, but everything that dies someday comes back.”  Bruce Springsteen’s lyric from his song “Atlantic City” came to mind when I found this old photo of my grandfather’s brother Phil strolling along the boardwalk in Atlantic City – dressed to kill.  He signed it for my grandfather, “To Rog, Phil”.  I don’t think I’d want some of the backward attitudes and beliefs to return, but can some of the class, clothes, and music come back?    What a dapper man (even the little girl in the picture is turning around to look at him) and what a great photo to remember the New Jersey Tennants.
