"Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak!"  Born there 60 years
ago, gone before I was 6 months old, grew up in central Illinois, been
various places in the Army for the last 30 years.  But my parents met in
Philadelphia (father from the Poconos, mother from hard-coal region) and she
lived there about 12 years.
