I was born in central Cali and moved to Dayton when I was five but I did spend a ton of time at the DMNH. I actually took summer classes there for several years before they moved it from the old site on Ridge over to the new one on Deweese. I can't lie, I still stop over at Boonshoft to catch a laser Floyd show every once in awhile.
Oh, and I do feel a bit odd living in Tipp. You wouldn't believe how many times I've had to say 'no thank you' to church invitations. Luckily, my neighbors are all nice enough to take it at that.
