welcome to america

this family is from iraq and fled the war, here they check out the new house with a member of a family who helped bring them here (at left) she was asking the little kid what he thought.

afterwards they all piled in and headed for mcdonald's and everyone got double cheeseburgers. sometimes i'm just amazed at life and the power of the daily experience. so here's a shot from a very wonderful friday afternoon.

i wanted to play neil diamond's we're coming to america but then i thought it might scare them off, i thought maybe it's better to give them some time - it took me a little while to like him, and yes, i admit, dammit, i like neil diamond.

i mean, "Cracklin' Rosie"? it doesn't GET any better than that.
