[A cannon at Gettysburg]
I thought the cannon picture from our vacation one year would make for a great intro into a blog on surrender. lol That must have been 2003?? We took a trip from NC to the Poconos, to meet up with a bunch of sober folks who get together annually at least, and that year it was up in the beautiful mountains of Pennsylvania. We got to travel the Cumberland Gap, Shenandoah Valley, Lancaster,PA where the Amish are, Gettysburg (hubby was so happy he nearly died--Civil War freak that he is), Woodstock (visited dear dear friends in Bainbridge NY, and they took us on a day trip to Woodstock and through the Alleghenies. It was a delightful trip. First time I'd ever been to New York or Pennsylvania. Bainbridge, BTW, is the home of Elmer's Glue. lol It's their claim to fame.
