Colonel Crawford is absolutely delightful! Whenever we visit a historic area I enjoy character interpreters the most. The best we've seen is "Thomas Jefferson" channeled at Williamsburg and elsewhere quite nicely by one Bill Barker.

That has to be one of dumbest postings of all times. Go ahead and have yourself a good laugh.

Oh. It looked like you were calling CG's comment dumb.

Oh no. I was placing the Amish on the West Coast instead of where I intended. In the western part of Ohio. Nobody can be dumber than me some days.

The last three pictures are from OH, the first one from around where our kids live. In the photo is Himself standing with our daughter The second is from the city next to ours that we would take regular outings to since they had a cute Town Common area, just like I imagined New England would look like. Imagine my surprise to find that my idea of a New England town square is hard to find. Right angles and roads rarely happen together. The last is of one of the best places to visit if you are ever in Cleveland: West Side Market. We are regular shoppers there when we're in the area, both when we lived there and now when we visit.
CG, I adore the small towns of America, anywhere USA

Addie, YOU never mentioned Amish, I did! You had said "....and...are...looking for a place that will be familiar to what you left behind, you will find it on the West Coast.. If you grew up on a farm in Ohio, you will find plenty of farmland on the West Coast...". I was saying it wouldn't look the same in CA because there weren't any Amish buggies around. I guess my "point" wasn't too sharp.

GG, I thought Addie called my point dumb too. I was ready to hunt her down and beat her up - after all, she posted a pic of her home.


I'm joking Addie!
