1407 Russell Road in Alexandria, Virginia
I don’t know about you but, this makes me sad. The Rosemont homeowner on Russell Road who LOVES the holidays has sold their home.

Via Sheriff Dana Lawhorne

Neighborhoods are defined by traditions. Delray has many but none better than the annual Halloween pirate show at 1407 Russell Road. Earlier today, Tami (the pirate lady) called me to break the bad news. She sold her house and is moving to Florida to help her aging parents. Her voice quivered as she told me the sad news. She talked about how much she enjoyed doing this for the community, especially the kids. It gave her great joy. I think she started off with a few pirates and it grew each year. Helping her was a blast. Working on it each year was a tradition that I looked forward to. I will miss the thousands of people who came to see it. I will miss helping Tami do something that allowed us to think about something other than bad news. It was a great distraction. It was a reminder that no matter what, traditions go on and so do it’s people. Tami never let us down. She is a wonderful person who spent all her free time and hard earned money to make us smile. She has a big heart. No surprise that she is moving to be with her parents who need her. Loyalty trumps tradition and that’s ok with me. I will miss her. If you can find time, send her a card or a note to say thank-you:
