      I remember that area long before that mall was built.  My friend's aunt owned a gorgeous 3 family on the steepest street in Providence.  She had a beautiful view of the Capitol.

        I do.  We actually were looking to rent an apartment in Providence when we first had to move to Boston, because a friend of ours was working at what became "Fleet" bank over by the Arcade

          building.  My friend's aunt was a famous dress designer in Providence -- her label was known far and wide.  Several of her dresses are at RISD.  I hope they aren't in storage.  They were stunning pieces from the '30s through the '50s.  One dress had a lace bodice.  There wasn't one seem in the bodice.  The aunt molded that dress to the buyer's body.  Utterly stunning.  I was ready to have ribs removed to own it.

          to do.   Get the frigging truck to Portland and then convince my buddy he wants to see his annoying brother -- OR he can join us for a fun day.

          I leave for CA to see my Mom on the 16th -- so this will be fun prior to the trip.  I'll keep you updated re: my nefarious manipulation.
