Marcus Hook is the refinery town down on the Delaware River. That was our post office until they screamed for one out here. Now all the locals are happy. Basically if you go up 95 from Del. Marcus Hook-Boothwyn is the first exit in Pa. To go to Marcus Hook is to the right, Boothwyn is to the left. Sun Oil and several refinerys are there. That is why we know that the oil shortage in the 70's was humorous. Crossing the bridge to Jersey you could see all the loaded down tankers lined up in the Delaware River, they had no where to put the oil, because the storage tanks were all full. Marcus Hook is an old waterfront town with lots of history. Blackbeard had a home there supposedly. Actually I think the Pagans taking over the town had a lot to do with our getting a Post Office out here. Not a lot of people were willing to drive down there. Guess I rattled on and gave you more info than you wanted now didn't I. LOL Ps. Unlike your paper (which had us in stitches) there has never been a story about a single tractor track being seen down there, infact I will go a step furthur and say a corn field has never been seen there either. LOL Love and Hugs Joyce

How wonderful it would be to see Angels where there are only clouds. How sad it would be to see clouds where there are Angels.
