This week’s new Bakersfield post is a little late, but for good reason. I was out of town this last weekend attending my parents’ 50th anniversary in my hometown of Derby, Kansas. While there, I had a chance to drive past our old family home that was on a cul-de-sac much like the one featured here. It was weird driving past the house I grew up in, now owned by another family. I could remember the inside of each one of the homes on that block but I didn’t know any of the new residents.
I remember feeling excited when new neighbors would move in on our sleepy little block. Who will be the new neighbor for our young protagonist? Stay tuned.
Below is the mock-up I made for Patrick that features real homes from the real Bakersfield.
