Sounds like some of my former "bar flies" back in the day!

Re: “Best Neighborhood in Henrico County

"Wonderful Willow Lawn" was my neighborhood in Henrico County. The quote comes from the original Willow Lawn Shopping Center marketing campaign (long before the "Shops at Willow Lawn"). I really enjoyed living there; quiet and convenient in the '90s.

Re: “Richmond Triangle Players’ “Laramie Project” reminds us of how trauma can become a rallying cry

I was a devotee of the Richmond Triangle Players when I lived in Richmond. I regret that I'm unable to attend this poignant production. I recall this tragic, senseless murder in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998. May we never forget.

Re: “A Month of Dirt

On April 25, my wife and I drove up from Newport News to attend the Richmond International Film Festival documentary about Donnie Corker (aka "Dirtwoman"). While raunchy at times (like Donnie), it was well done with compassion and understanding. Donnie at heart, was a kind and gentle soul. His public persona was just the opposite. When I lived and worked in Richmond in the 1970s, Donnie was quite a Richmond icon. Seeing the personalities on screen who were interviewed for the documentary brought back a lot of memories. Even though the '70s in Richmond were fun, I was reminded that it was also a dangerous decade with the shooting at the Male Box on Idlewood Ave and the harrowing incident between club owners at the original Cha Cha Palace at 719 W. Broad St.

While in Richmond, I pointed out such places as the above (which I frequented as a young adult) to my wife.

"Think of those good times, leave your cares behind..." Thanks, Richmond; where good times are not forgotten!

Re: “The Dooleys’ Digs

Love Maymont, but can't stand French design (the gardens and on site mini-farm make up for it)
