Judy (friend’s grandmother): I’m August 14. That’s V-J Day.
Me: I didn’t know that…
Judy: I remember we were upstairs listening to the radio. The president came on and said the war was over. They set fires on Main Street.
Me: On Main Street in Buffalo? Like campfires?
Judy: In Snyder. Bonfires. Wood, tires. The Higgins family set fires.
Me: Umm…Did you say “Higgins?”
Judy: Yes, I remember it was the Higginses.
Me: Did you know I’m a Higgins? That’s my name.
Judy: Really??? Joe Higgins. Lois…
Judy: Alright. It was different Higginses then.
