The Navy to the rescue!

We lived in a tumble down house in East LA with a sagging porch and a dirt front yard. The whole neighborhood suffered hard times.
Imagine our surprise when a huge package came to us in the mail just before Christmas. It was from my brother in the Navy who we hadn't heard from in years. In the package was a cardboard put-it-together-yourself-submarine for my kids!
It was a definite hit and our humble little house became the neighborhood hub, (until the rain came and took the starch out of our sails.)

Is that you in the sub?

No, those are my kids.(We didn't own a camera so actual pictures are rare. Google to the rescue).

That sub was one of the best presents ever! Thanks Uncle Mike!
