I had a dream about a vacation with my older son. We were at a lovely, rocky beach. Walking along the shore together, we kept noticing grand staircases going right down to the water that didn't seem to be connected to any of the impressive beachfront homes.
Investigating further, we realized that they were part of a sprawling old decommissioned military fort like Fort Worden.
"Oh, wow!" I turned excitedly to Number One. "These must be from WWII!"
"No, Mom," he answered glibly. "I asked around. These installations were in use during the 70's."
"Really? All the way up to the 70's?" I replied, obviously surprised at the need for such as recently as my childhood.
He looked at me with that funny, sneering little smile, "It's not like it was last weekend, ya know."
Poking fun at me even in my dreams?
