The long and winding roads

Starting this afternoon, I am on vacation, taking my sons to see my father up in Maryland for a week. Ah, road trips! Growing up during the 1970s, my father often strapped me and my sister into our car, station wagon or Jeep Wagoneer to travel from the Washington, D.C., area (where he still lives) to Wantagh, N.Y., on Long Island, where his parents lived.
