    Correction: I said above I lived 280 miles north of Ft Worth. That is inaccurate.
    I live about one hundred and eighty (180) miles north of Ft Worth.

    Steve, how far do you live from the fictionable 'Three Pines' Village? On second thought
    I believe Three Piines is north of Lake Ontario.

    I could list the town where I live, Gloria...but I'd rather make a discussion of it!:D

    Just numbers, you say? I guess you don't care for the accuracy provided by geographic references, do you?

    Numbers are everything! Look at a map that provides Latitudes and Longitudes in Degrees, Minutes, and Seconds.

    Many members know where I live, so just keep your eyes open!:)

    My daughter was working up there for a week last year, and she sent pictures. I think that she flew into Rochester and then drove to where she was working, somewhere near Oswego, if I remember right.
    Looked it up, she was actually working at Fort Drum.

    Beautiful country and old homes, @Peter Renfro !
    We were all ready to pack up, move, and go and help her restore a home up there. We have a lot of family roots from New York area, and Robin has them from both my side and her dad’s family; so I think something up there was calling to her to come home.

    A lot of abandoned homes and businesses inupstate NY. We never suffered from the great recession because we never had anything around here to lose. Rochester area is a bright spot in the economy. Fort Drum is way up there. Heck yo might as well be in Canada.
    Yep NY is not what most imagine it to be.The city is a tiny little corner.

    The character you have pictured is Sergeant Schultz from "Hogan's Heroes".

    Colonel Klink is the officer in charge of the Stalag.

    @John Brunner, we have a timeshare at Massanutten (Elkton) that we go to once a year, usually around this time of the year. However, this isn't a good time to visit a timeshare, particularly since Virginia's governor seems to be even more virus crazy than ours.
