Have you ever thought about how it would be to play on a basketball team in elementary school with Michael Jordan (probably not a lot of fun – huh?). Imagined yourself singing in the glee club with Beyoncé, being a neighbor of Tom Hanks, and spending your childhood building treehouses together or just do some other adventures?

“My grandpa was a grocery store owner. (In the late 70´s) Wesley Snipes and his friends were regulars and once they´ve stolen candy from his store and when he caught them, he (still) let them have it…
One day, Wesley´s bike was stolen while it was parked in front of the grandpa´s store. He gave him his old bike. Grandpa passed away and uncle has taken over the store in 2001.
In 2007 Wesley came back and he asked about grandpa. He talked with my uncle for an hour. Uncle mentioned to him, they are planning to repaint a story.
