    Me too. I always enjoy watching the Ringling Bros. Train go by. It went by a few weeks ago, & I think they are performing in Cleveland now.

    Chuck, we left here yesterday morning and got in tonight.

    The procedure was unsuccesfull but man..did they ever get me high!

    We could not get a motel in Charlottesville as it was parents weekend at U Va. Besides all the motels add a big increase to the rate and goug the parrents,even at Staunton they added a $100 to the room rates.

    We planned to drive to New Market on the way back and to Ft. Defiance to look for old family graves from the Colonial period so we drove up there Friday and stayed.

    OK, Gil. I was wondering where you were at. I remember driving down old Rt 11

    in VA. Stopping at New Market for lunch. When I was a kid. 50 years ago.

    Crap, I'm getting old.

    It hasnt changed.

    We stopped at Ft. Defiance to see the Old Stone Church and look for graves, found one from 1810.

    The church is actualy the New stone church as of 1790.

    The cemetary we were looking for was down the road but we will go there next trip, maybe in December.

    There should be family there from 1750 to later.

    Wow, you have a family tree going that far back. That must be fun to find all the folks from that far back.
