Anyone remember that car stereo shop near old town that ran an ad in the Sunday Washington Post every week, advertising rebuilt car stereos? They only had one of each but I recall a full page ad every Sunday back in the early seventies … it was fun to read them and I got my first in dash cassette player from those guys

Morris Katz. It was on South Peyton Street, at the intersection with Prince Street. It was at approximately 210 South Peyton Street. I just took a look at Google maps to see what's there now. I can't tell, as there are a bunch of trees in the way.

Here's more about Morris Katz.

Remembering Morris Katz & Sons in Alexandria #ThrowbackThursday

Who remembers Morris Katz & Sons in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia? The Morris Katz sign on Commerce Street is still standing.

Morris Katz was located on South Peyton Street and Prince Street in Old Town and was in operation from 1927 until the early 2000s when the firm Land Design took over the space.

Every 2 or 3 years my Dad would buy our Mom a new Ford Country Squire Station Wagon. We(me and my siblings) were not allowed to ride in it until the clear plastic seat covers were put on the rear seats.

We went to Morris Katz, and I remember the huge neon that lit up the night. I also remember the dimples the seat covers left on the back of our legs in the summer time.

Dad bought the factory A/C but he didn't want to wear it out, so he used it sparingly.

Circa 1965 - Great memories

Thanks for posting those route maps. I had been looking for those. I had seen them earlier, but I had forgotten where.

Flight 77 went directly over what used to be T.C. Williams HS in Alexandria.

Maybe someone could move all the legit pictures and commentary to a Facebook page. I am old and not smart enough to do this but maybe someone could figure it out. You and Andy could be moderators.

The bane of non-moderated forums. Implementing moderators would help, but Fairfax Underground probably won't do that. Or as Fairfax Fred suggested, lift the content and move it elsewhere, to a moderated site, possibly with user authentication and validation.

I have thousands of photos and negatives of Fairfax, DC, NoVA, and Appalachian Trail created by me in the 1970s and 1980s, and some much older too. My grandfather taught me photography. He worked in photography from 1911 to 1972. He started as an apprentice in 1911 at age 12.

Some of my images are already on this site, albeit most not posted by me. I found this site while looking for a place to post and share some of my images.

I wont post on this site. It's unmoderated, and rife with trolls, spam and non-sensical vapid sociopathic drivel, hate, venom, and political diatribe.

Nice effort though, for the people who do post here in the spirit of this thread's title. Too bad it was started on a forum BBS service created for Trolls and administered by one.

Motocross riding was big at the Hayfield Gravel Pits in the 1970's.

#things piqued my interest like BB guns, motocross bicycles, and girlfriends. In the early 1980s, life went on and jobs took over the spare time, and by the next time I looked up in the pits, it was a huge construction site for a new place called Kingstowne.

#Fast forward 35 years, and Kingstowne is my go-to spot for practically everything in my life but it’s hard to picture the gravel pits anymore. Reminiscing picked up online, so I embarked on a documentary film project that taken over during the summer of 2021, entitled “The Gravel Pits: Before There was Kingstowne.”

Yes, Blance is right--the sign says "Baileys Center." The building was razed and it's now a Best Buy. Had many meals there.

Anyone remember that the hostess who ran the cash register had the last name of Register?! Always got a kick out of that.

Not sure if this is The Breezeway. I don't remember that fence, and where is the Gulf gas station that later became Midas Muffler?

Was thinking the same thing. In older photos of Breezeway, the sign out front is slightly different than the one in this photo.

You might be right. I was told it was the Breezeway. Here are two shots of the Breezeway before and after the modular guest building was added.

It looks like the former location of the Alpine Restaurant (RIP). I thinkk the left side fence is facing Lee Highway.

I haven't been down to Ruffino's since before the pandemic -- thanks for the reminder. Apparently the area is being gentrified and a multi-story building is going on the lot.

Yes, I do believe it was the Alpine until recently.

Apparently, Billy Kilmer and Sunny Jurgensen would occasionally do some late night sobering up there, as I seem to recall it playing a part in one of them having a vehicular run in/issue with the police at one time?

Can anybody verify that second part?

I am pretty sure about the first part, that is, them spending time there on occasion.

Maybe not. Who knows.

I remember seeing Terry Bradshaw and some other CBS football personalities at the Alpine prior to a play off game when the Redskins were on the march to their Super Bowl XXVI. What a great season...

Anyway, I believe I remember the Alpine being a Redskins hangout at some point.

Billy Kilmer, DUI, December 11, 1976.

Toddle House, Arlington, December 6, 1971 arrested for disorderly conduct and drunk in public. He tried to pay a $4 tab with a $100 bill. The waitress and restaurant couldn't give change for the large denomination at that hour. He became belligerent and started an ego drive tirade, creating an overly melodramatic scene. True to his character, he became a total jerk bully during the altercation. He's not a very gracious person at all.

- By today's standards, that would be like attempting to a a $25 tab with a $650 in currency.


He had several other infractions and altercations too, In several other incidents he was not charged due to his celebrity. Basically just an egotistical obnoxious jerk, especially when intoxicated with drugs and alcohol.

What makes you think that's the one in Annandale?

It's too blurry for me to tell about the buildings in the rear, but it looks like the left side has too much trees and there has always been a low-rise commercial building there, not a house.

And what's that ANTENNA there?

From this angle, I can't see the side of the strip mall buildings on the right.

But on the left I should be seeing the Baptist Church there. I see something else that looks like it has a big chimney, instead.

The landscaping, lot configuration, and street entrance don't look quite right, either.

Maybe I'm wrong - photos can be confusing - but I rode my bicycle in that parking lot at that Ginos all the time when I was a kid living a few blocks from there. This picture doesn't look quite right. I think it's some other Ginos.

(I lived there from the early 60s to early 80s. It was originally a TOPS. I most recently ate there last week....)

Also, it's not "the edge of Annandale", it's smack in the middle of the main drag in Annandale. 7064 Columbia Pike.

Evans to Alpine to construction Wrote:
-------------------------------------------------------
> Yes, I do believe it was the Alpine until recently.

4770 Lee Highway

It was the Evans Coffee Shop from 1939 to 1961. Originally 50 seats, later expanded to 265 seats. (Decorated with historical memorabilia on the walls. If you've been to the Cracker Barrel chain, it was sort of like that, only real.)

In the 1940s the family had 43 acres in Mclean and moved onto a farmh there. In 1958 they opened Evans Farm Inn. That property was sold to townhouse developers in 1999.

I learned some of that from
https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=fcpl/vif00032.xml

The Alpine Restaurant was there from 1966 until the owber retired and sold it in May, 2010, to the Liberty Tavern group. However, they didn't do anything with it, and it has sat vacant all this time. Demolition was on January 27, 2021.

The site will become a co-op daycare called "The Childrens School". This is a nonprofit facility for the children of Arlington Public School employees. The three-story building will also house the "Integration Station", a program for kids with developmental and other disabilities.

___
PS:
Alpine not to be confused with the "Ski Chalet" on Columbia Pike, a couple blocks from Glebe Road. This building has a similar external style. It wasn't a restaurant - it actually is a place for skis (and snowboards and such). The business moved to Seven Corners recently.

That should be "The US Deportation Station" with cells for illegal cheaters to then be deported by landing ships back to their homeland

Illegals who enter the USA illegally cheat on the rest of the world's legal immigration lines of people of all races and religions who must wait to get their legal papers to come to the USA

Illegals devalue low income US jobs that the lowest income US citizens and legal immigrants who want to work, not collect welfare need

If there's not enough US workers , then the wages of low income jobs will just have to raise until the Americans who are legal immigrants and US citizens will take the low income jobs , tough shit to the fly by night "businesses" who charge market prices and pay low income illegal workers under market wages or even regular market wages

Illegals place high demands on all low income housing , housing that is the province of the legal immigrant and US citizen, never those who should not be in this country .

Illegals also overcrowd schools in Nova and all over the nation, this overcrowding places unneeded stresses on students teachers and staff and requires more tax money unfairly of the tax paying legal immigrants and US citizens to provide for children who should not be here as the law require all children to be able to go to public schools and why is that when deportation is the answer

Illegals that need medical care must be treated then who pays their bills , Forget any changes to Medicare or Medicaid to reward these US immigration law cheaters , as the American people now take a beating on medical care costs and insurance premiums

Asylum seekers are those who leave their countries under threat of death just as those who escaped from the Soviet bloc had to brave machine gun fire to escape, while too many illegals freely leave the countries and freely return home as they want

In order to change this violation of the people of the United States , never vote for the Democrat who enables these illegals , Look at the horrible inhuman mess President Joe Biden has created on the US southern border LOOK AT IT Democrats .President Trump had our border under control , Joe Biden revered his rules for no good reason but spite ! Joe Biden will not nor will he even go down there in any serious way he only wants to pack as many illegals into the USA as possible in hopes they will vote Democrat in the future ! THERES NO OTHER EXPLAINATION WE KNOW WHY IT IS AS IT IS !

RACIST! ITS THE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE RACIST WHEN THEY THROW THAT RACE CARD OUT AT PEOPLE WHO WANT OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS ENFORCED ! DEMOCRATS ARE PANDERING TO THE PEOPLE WHO CAN WALK INTO THE US WHILE THE LEGAL WORLD OF IMMIGRATS MUST WAIT !

THATS WHATS RACIST! AS SAID THE LEGAL LINE IS FULL OF THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD OF ALL RACES !

NO REWARDS EVER FOR ILLEGALS

Not sure if that Drivette building is still standing at Columbia Pike and George Mason.

It became a Ginos (RIP) but I'm not sure what it was after that -- possibly a Red Barn?

I haven't been down Columbia Pike that far in a while, its getting very gentrified with the new Harris Teeter,etc.

The site had the (distinctive patented architecture) Red Barn on it in the 1970s -- it's still there.

(It is currently being used as a Ryder Truck rental.)

EDIT: Oh! You're referring to the TOPPS ad.

I don't remember there being a Ginos at the site you're talking about. I must have missed that. This is around the corner from the 7-11, right? (I can't make out the road names on the advertisement's map.)

The ad called that store a "Drivette (only)".

Normally it was a "Drive-in", but I don't even remember what that meant. Is it a store that has a drive-thru window, and also dine-in? Or did "drive-in" mean actual car service? Maybe "Drivette" means no seating or no something else? Or just being cute and inconsistent terminology? What was the deal?

I don't remember car service at the TOPPS in Annandale. But it could have been.

There were definitely other chains we went to around here that did that, back then. Some plaecs you ordered from a push-button at your parking spot. Like you do at SONIC in modern times. Other places a girl came out to take your order. Either way, she came out to deliver the food.

I do have a vague recollection that the one at S. George Mason Driev was something else before Red Barn. (I remember driving by one day: "Oh! Red Barn!" as if that was new.)

I don't think we ever ate at the particular Red Barn. Now I'm trying to remember which one we went to. Where were they? I used to remember where some of them were, but now I am old and am starting to forget things!

I was fascinated when someone in another thread mentioned "Glascock" owned the property around (?) the 29 Diner at the 50/123 intersection.

I recognized the name from this airstrip, I used to drive by and see a Cessna parked there near the road:

http://www.airfields-freeman.com/VA/Airfields_VA_Loudoun.htm#glascock

If you want to see old pics of airports around here, the above site is wonderful. Like some of you, I remember the airport at Bailey's Crossroads of course; it (and the drive-in theatre) still operating when I was a kid. I'm a pilot, but never flew around this area until the 90s.

So who was this Glascock guy, anyway?

I also remember a plane landing on one of the little lakes around here when I was there. It might have been Lke Accotink, or maybe Burke Lake, because we went to both those all the time. Anyone have recollections of that?

As said, he owned the land the 29 Diner was on and land around there. There was a derelict green building on one side of the 29 towards Rt 123 that he owned he was one who bought cheap and sold high at his pleasure . He had many land holdings. He was wise when land was cheap and he was young but you still had to have money. I can't remember what he did maybe a bondsman as he obtained property but he was famous locally around Fairfax , as you may have seen his son John owned Johns VW Repair next to the 29 he's about 70 71 now or may have passed

I have seen Bill Glascocks grave site he has a black granite monument his wife is with him and there's a small airplane engraved on it .I must withhold the location as this is questionable site but many from Fairfax City are resting there at least 4 people I knew. One is W.T Woodson who I met but never knew as such

That picture is from the north side of Lee Highway at the intersection with George Mason Drive in Arlington VA looking south. The Radio Antena is up on the ridge that overlooks Arlington Hospital/Virginia Hospital Center which is 1/4 mile behind the restaurant. It's in the Halls Hill, Lee Harrison neighborhood of Arlington.

That location at one time was a Tops Drive In, later a Ginos, and then a Roy's. Not sure what it is now as I haven't paid attention when driving by.

Because of its location near the nation's capital, the county has a large base of government contractors, especially in the defense and intelligence sectors. Companies in Fairfax County receive more federal spending than any other county or city in the United States. In fiscal year 2015, companies received $23.1 billion in purchases, about two-thirds of which were for Department of Defense projects.

To finish the history:
Shortly after becoming Roy Roger's, Hardees acquired the majority of the RR stores from Marriott, who wanted out of the QSR game. (The Roy's that escaped were franchise locations.) Hardee's then botched everything by rebranding their newly purchased stores as Hardee's, which no one in the DC area had heard of at the time, leading to a drop in sales. Hardee's eventually gave up and sold the now-former Roy's stores to McDonald's, who either converted them to their brand or rented out the land the stores stood on to other companies.

Now enter DavCo, a former major franchisee of Wendy's, who leased the spot at this intersection, and proceed to build a Friendly's there in 1999 after DavCo acquired a franchise license. By 2004 this venture also failed, and the store was shuttered and eventually torn down to become a Chevy Chase Bank. It eventually became a Capitol One Bank branch, which itself shut down in the late 2010's, with the building apparently empty to the time of this post.

Minor correction that Hardee's was around, but not very noteworthy. There was one in West Springfield at least from the mid-70s.

The thing is that Hardee's has never had much of a chain identity. At the time, the rest had distinctive/iconic items -- Quarter Pounder, Whopper, Roy's fixings bar. Hardee's never had one of those. I'd go in the late '70s because they were the only place in West Springfield with tacos. (I don't recall whether they were good.)

About the only reason you went to Hardee's was because it was close.

66 beginning is before my time (which end though), however when the scandals were released in news (for 66 and 495) it was in my time.

* land deals were made between contractors government - some contractors and gov workers involved got "deals too good to be true" on property

* 495 signs were all mixed up AND INCORRECT - confused the public for a decade or more. they took hundreds or thousands of man hours of time and money to "finally fix the signs"

I'm sure some 66 people complained "they weren't compensated for property" because they law says they must be and politicians often profit by NOT doing the law and blocking lawsuits

LATER - ROAD NOISE SCREENS BECAME A BOONDOGLE. At first they were property owners responsibiliy (they'd been compensated already).

SHARON BULOVA moves in - it became the TAXPAYER'S responsibility - a second dip into the funds. they covered up the news it'd already been payed out: simply not part of the news and IP BLOCKED from anyone offering evidence it was

What is going on a funeral or parade or the 4th? Sure it's rt 50 before i66 was built but was traffic ever that bad?

TRAFFIC WAS ... back in the day ... where a drunk could often get away driving since there wasn't as much chance of meeting another car at the intersection. (kinda like 4am in the morning today?)

Sure there was traffic 1970's "infrequently" but bumper to bumper in town - maybe in city idk - but in suburbs i don't think so

and going out of town - your in farm-land quickly seeing farm animals and low traffic or just "trees and more trees" of course - old fairfax

I think this photo makes it appear there were traffic jams in the 1970's sub-urbs fairfax ... but there weren't

Gerrymanderer2 (G2, the OP original poster or spammer just above, perhaps both) posts several lies on ffu daily - many think he's a fx co gov worker who is getting paid to do it for false DNC democrat "advertising". He floods ffu with useless posts to bump down major news, demoralize americans. G2 posts fecal matter, mutilated bodies, child porn, foreign drug ads and sneaker ads, tells people to kill themselves and government should seize them and put them on psych pills in prison without a trial - decided by DNC democrats gov workers, promotes kangaroo courthouse trials, gives anti-religious rants, gives satanic ritual rants, posts black males with large dicks on white young females, portends white low birth rate and fall of USA whites, suggestive of food tampering/poisoning to solve the white problem, and anything possible to demoralize any americans on ffu - all of which are fake news he never responds to proofs it is fake. (perhaps g2 is a chinese prisoner or isis member - but definitely knowledgeable of fx co gov from the inside at times). The website operator has told him "not to post or return" (in an existing post by the sysop): not because of a political leaning but for continual illegal and gross spam along with messages that are only to demoralize if not kill others. G2 plays at financial terrorism as well; continually reporting fake and false financial data. G2 fakes emergency pleas to deaden the real response to any real one - like a devil. G2 continually spams FFU - which all users complain of: it is a real DoS attack - the attacks are not just topic bumps but designed to inject key words to kill ffu and google search results. G2 continually promotes drug use, alcoholic experimentation, and tries to convince members to meet hookers using photos from the 1990's (i doubt any that did are not arrested or dead). G2 continually posts racist posts and gay posts egging others to comment - then attacks who does - AND RECORDS IT (likely for political extortion). G2 and dems MONITOR AND RECORD* "conservatives who blast out these democrat lies and illegal abuse of telephone privilege (sometimes in a raw manner, being so jaded by the job)" (users who object to G2's actions listed so far). One ffu member discovered a south american country recording FFU databasing all posts in a non-chat database format - and when questioned - another member quickly said it was all coincidence and that this was done everywhere in the world on all sites: WHICH IS A LIE. Not all countries record the every word of what fairfaxians say on blogs. Extortion is also mentioned by G2. And the idea he's fishing for comments he can use against anyone who'd run for office is "just assume he's in that business" - and i've warned others that is what he fishes for - excuses to attack conservatives and or to extort them.

SOME POSTERS ON FFU FEEL G2 IS A JOKER: I ASSURE YOU THE ABOVE COMPLAINTS ARE GENUINELY A THREAT TO ONLOOKERS (THE UN-INTIATED), NON-DEMOCRATS, AND TO ANYONE STATING THAT LAWS SHOULD BE IMPOSED ON DEMOCRATS EQUALLY AS DEMOCRATS IMPOSE THEM ON OTHERS: MONEY

LEGAL NOTICE: DEMOCRATS HAVE `SWATTED' THE HOMES OF SOME FFU POSTS WHO REFUTE G2 AND CALL DEMS OUT ON THEFT AND LIES - AND EXPOSE THE LAWS THEY COULD BE PROSECUTED FOR BREACH OF TRUST. THAT'S A CONFIRMED WITNESSED FACT. IT IS NO JOKE WHAT G2 IS DOING. HIS CONTINUAL FISHING IS NOT IDLE - THEY ARE TRIGGERED AND ARMED. which i've warned others about since, about 2010 - that G2 is fishing for men to "erase" politically, by any means available to him


G2 has now been wimpering that anti-G2 posts are "unfair" and that users who protest G2 should be blocked, SWATTED (see above), and forced on medications (see above), and that "someone else is G2". However - do not let the vicious foreign attacker fool you into your death our out of your community: G2 has been active since exactly the beginning of 2017 "hillary has already won the election" set of lies and has only DOUBLED spam recently - yes the suicide taunting of others, false information, and all else listed above. He is not wimpering for help he has doubled the spam and vicious attacks (or they, communist/facist using federal money. I pinned him correctly when I began this warning post.

GO BACK TO HELL G2. YOU ARE EXPOSED.

DROP DEAD G2

i likely wasn't around for that one? But i do remember "bread factories" in fairfax. i think a donought factory at one time also that made (what) for dunkin donought stores.

unlike today - bread makers were "closer in to the city" than they apparently are today.

i haven't seen any bread factories recently and i do remember news of the local bread maker closing. who knows how far away the breadmakers are now.

it was either in the news or the talk of the nearby town - the bread factory closing

i remember either workers in the news or perhaps spoke to some personally about the closure. they were all "damn distribution progress has caused loss of our jobs"

G2 (spammer) will tell you they slaved nigs spics hindu in those factories.

THAT IS ESPECIALLY NOT TRUE.

MEANWHILE - IN MARYLAND - MOSTLY FARMING AND "the other DC military community" (other than surrounding areas including fairfax)

THEY TOOK IN WWII GERMANS FROM GERMAN BASES WHO "signed up for military duty to get the hell out of germany". Most settled in maryland allot of them stayed.

There were rumors some of them were SPIES - still nazzi. ie WTOP and propagandizing USA downfalls in "the media" like rosa parks balto.

-----------------------------------
High's was a 7-11 that was before 7-11. It was fresh and from Maryland people loved it.

It (all stores in VA) were shut down by "foreign powers with more money clout and banking attacks".

it was not long after the lasts "High's" were closed we began hearing news "Maryland is a sanctuary city". Maryland is Clinton democrat. Maryland is in your city doing "contracts". Maryland wants a bridge into VA. And so on.

it was said by some in Fairfax the "asian and germans" being imported were "unfair". they had a hard enough time paying the phone bill finding car parts and those people had attacked us and were "escaping the poverty they created thmeselves by attacking the USA". they didn't think they should need to share any more than the long work hours they had. and they did work good work days - absolutely they did. it was expected.

G2 has been attacking these historyic photo posts continually lately with CRT.

I don't mind at all pointing out "DC IMPLANTS" means Democats signed deals with marion barry in the 1990's to (TAKE MY FUTURE APARTMENT GIVE IT TO THEM). That deals were made with WATMA and so on.

That there was NOT much many black population in Fairfax: until more recently from DC IMPLANT DEALS. There were not only few blacks in fairfax but fewer black workers. Ie if you went to the mall 7-corners - all the mall employees were WHITE, well mostly i really didn't count back then.

G2 is in this channel posting porn and CRT junk several times in last several pages. also some fake photos "showing some crt" that actually aren't from Fairfax but from maybe DC or LA or GA.

his intent is to flood spam. if he could he'd delete all the past photos. give him access - you will see he attempts it. and i'm quite SURE that 2 DC implants are in charge of Fairafax's "main webpage". i spoke to them in the 20teens. and the office next door smelled like marajuana - which i hadn't smelled since the 1980's.

what IS true is in the 1980's there were black (mostly white some black) school janitors. they were very good men and would give you a helping hand. and likely there to get out of DC and CRT. they never approached children for sex or to verbally attack CRT.

file.php?2,file=432671,filename=6998_887 LARGE COURTYARD

large yard but not at an airport (airport isn't in reston is it? no matter)

RESTON DID NOT HAVE A BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL AT ANY TIME

it was a few homes and small stores until "some huge apartment complexes for DC niggers" were built there. before that - homes which were "a bit far to commute from" were there which is WHY not allot was there. a few small shopping centers and allot of sub-urbs (but many suburbs of reston are "new" as far as i'm concerned). My memory of (now crt renamed) "reston parkway" is ALLOT OF TREES in the 1980's. now try to find a few businesses driving a few more miles that had repair shops / goods? you were already in HERNDON. Reston practically "didn't exist" except for the AIRPORT (which ialso is why any suburbs were there).

Reston wasn't even a planned community until sometime in the 1980's (per say - it was mostly trees)

in the 1970's? big city paved mall area with arts festivals?

DIDN'T HAPPEN in reston. IN LA CALIFORNIA SAY THAT HAPPENED. In reston: your lying that photo isn't from Reston.

RESTON DOESN'T HAVE A LARGE COURTYARD INSIDE A MALL STILL. RESTON HAS NO SHOPPING CENTER

RESTON HAS NO COURTHOUSE

RESTON HAS NO HIGHSCHOOL WITH AN EXTRAVAGANT COURTYARD

reston never ever had that many blacks in it until the 1990's WATMA/DCMETRO deals when "the crack capitol of the world" was placed in reston by corrupt politicians

there are more blacks in that photo than all of reston had housed in the earlier 1980's, but the photo is clearly pre-1980's

FURTHERMORE THEY ARE ALL HIPPIES CLEARLY

FAIRFAX COPS HARASSED AND ARRESTED HIPPIES SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY LOOKED LIKE HIPPIES

VA and State police never allowed Fairfax Reston area to be a den of hippies. They would have been arrested and given a bus ticket out of town.

NO WAY NO HOW A mob of unemployed hippies in fairfax in 1970's. total bullshit.

That's something I have never heard of. Looks like it might have been a rendition of Hair the musical. Thanks for sharing.

=======================

my angle is a little differnt - expose and shout down the throat of. there's going to far then there's going too far. Clinton days were too far - Obama days were insane - but Biden days

they they are going to arrest the Historian for keeping "anti-black photo sets"

DON'T TREAT THEM KINDLY OR TIP YOUR HAT I'D SAY

I'D SAY NO MORE KIND IS DESERVED AT ALL.

Gee Goy I guess I "gots" to break out my late 60's old T shirt when I reply to you , BTW I never posted anything bigoted or racist how can I when Im The JEW In That BIG JEW CANOE

Post some old pics or STFU . Its not a sweat , then you can bitch in your post

Your new pal DAJAX The JEW and obvious Soup Nazi

Merrywood in 1974 The House "Jackie O" grew up in Mclean on the Potomac with the son of the owners

The story goes from my memory that Bobby Kennedy wanted that house in the late 50's .The owner then was a old school Virginia State Senator who was appalled by Bobby's brashness like a Rich New York Billionaire LOL Im voting for again displays that's MAGA. Bobby offered $100000 for the house and was firmly told "Its not for sale" , So Bobby bought "Hickory Hill" on Old Chain Bridge Road for his expanding gang of children to romp swim and play for decades to come for the same amount . Exactly what Elvis paid for Graceland back then . When Hickory Hill was sold not all that long ago It was up for 10 million , I don't know what it sold for. "When your old rich and crotchety and especially cheap everything is not that long ago"

file.php?2,file=425790,filename=merrywoo

============================

due to the style of driveway, flat lay of land - I DON'T THINK THAT'S MC'LEAN - hollywood or DC or something maybe

this is yet another post of putting "things in fairfax that were never there, and never in black & white as depicted either"

mc'clean does not have a large governor's mansion replica that i know of (especially not b&w photo days) - but does have large homes YES. and that's an awful clean b&w photo.

AKA likely DAMIEN and the other CRT posts

===================================

you may well have here a lead on:

INDICATION OF ARSON CHUCK ROBB HOME

this CRT spamming idiot has been obsessing about mansions in Mc'Lean for over a year - and obsession about these historic photos for several years spamming

I ALSO KNOW - there are newly allot of hostile asians who'd love to blame CRT nigs for what they are doing in Mc'Clean using USA taxpayer money (take it over by burning down a neighbor - well within chinese rules) - i've seen the new digs go up and who's walking up to them: i'm not stupid.

I WOULD DOUBLE INVESTIGATE CHUCK ROB'S HOME FIRE

What we also know: is ranting in black news about Chuck Robb's home about "his being too wealthy, having two properties instead of one, other bs" other CRT accusations. Same shit as the DC four coverage I'd say (white boy tortured & killed in fire for black progress).

I just had one on tip of tounge forgot - but there are many other indictations in Fairfax of hostile murders of whites ongoing.

========================================

I think the fire at Chuch Robb's home may have been ARSON by actual terrorists.
