In Growing Up 518, we've been following the story of my 84-year old Nana. She's spent almost all of her life right here in the Capital Region and in this series she's been sharing her stories of how it once was locally.

In episode 8, my Grandfather had gone off overseas for the air force and Nana moved back in with her parents in Troy. Their first apartment was a bit better than the trailer and they started "gettin' busy" in hopes of having their first child, which happens to be my Mom.
