After reading over my posts today, I see that my spelling is getting worse.  One reason is I take my pain meds mid morning , then second is I am having to type on a laptop, which has small keys to try to hit.  devil so try to read between the lines if things don't make sense with my spelling.

Thanks for the info.  Tennessee rural schools 54 years ago really did a good job edjumacating us, but I have let it slip over the years.

Bluebird, I will update the Journey page as I able.  I am writing it a little at a time in Word.  Since this isn't a very active thread I'll share a little secret.  I am just (I think your around Asheville vicinity?) over the mountain from you in Kingsport.

Whenever I made a spelling mistake, my Dad would give me that Abbott and Costello straight line:
He'd say, "Didn't you go to school, Stupid?"
and I'd answer: "Sure, and I came out the same way."
Don't worry about the errors, just stay in touch!
