Son:  Mom?  Were you born yet when Al Capone was alive?

Me:  Didn’t he die in the 1940’s?   How old am I?

Son:  I don’t know.  Uhmmm… I guess you couldn’t have been alive then, huh?

Me:  No, Grammie and Papa weren’t even born yet when he died.

Son:  Oh.  I just read a book about him.   Have you ever heard of the Valentine’s Day Massacre?
