You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Orange You Gladys...


Tuesday, Jun 12, 2007 from Milton, Delaware

…a beautiful day!

What an evening last night. Jeanie, her friend John, and myself loaded up and headed to Cape Henlopen State Park. Of course on the way there Jeanie didn’t let me get by without an interview on video. She’ll be adding it to her video collection of different artists and so forth. So John asked the questions while I gave the synopsis of my trip. So we arrived at the park, headed up the tower, then back down the tower to grab rice, then back up, and down again. It was off to the beach, once again at the shore of the Atlantic Ocean as well as Delaware Bay, one of the few places on the east coast where you can watch the sunrise and sunset over water. We spotted a couple dolphins in the water thanks to a couple from Michigan who had their surfboards out, and we watched the sunset as the big pink bouncy ball of a sun dipped below the horizon. It really did look like a big pink bouncy ball though.

The night was finished with a great late night burger at 11 o’clock. Then I tried to find room for a piece of cake that was bigger than the burger itself, with a few scoops of ice cream on top. I was exhausted. But thanks to John and Charlie I’ll be headed to New Jersey via the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. Oh that’s right, as John and Charlie said, “the two faries sent me on my first ferry ride.”

I had to save the best for last, after the sunset and before the burger, there was Gladys. Orange you Gladys a beautiful day? John introduced us to Gladys. Now we need more people like John out there today. Here’s John, a middle-aged guy and both 11 at night and 7 in the morning he’ll be on the phone with one of his best friends, Gladys. He’ll take her out to movies and invite her over for dinner. They’re great friends. Gladys is 78 years old. And it’s not often to see great friends like that across generations, but it’s very rewarding. Gladys still lives in the same house she was born and has hardly stepped foot outside Milton. And she has simply got it, she is sharp, and she is happy to be alive. Her joy spreads through the room fast. Wow she’s sharp! And energy! Full of energy! She has a great 100 acre farm that goes back to when her parents came over from Europe. I have to say that her piece of land, her house, the stories of her photos or knick knacks in the house, and Gladys herself, that’s America!

Orange you Gladys to be an American.

Hey Bugsy, I visited Cape May, NY when I was about 12 years old with my brother, Bill and Aunt Marion! Oh it was glorious as we stayed in a seaside resort and played in the ocean! That is awesome that you will take the ferry across from Delaware! Jeannie, John & Gladys sound like great people - HI to all of you from Justin's Mom!
