Carry Me Back to Old Virginny



I'll be heading south for my annual October vacation with my sisters in Virginia.  We've been meeting back in our hometown of Roanoke for the past twenty-five years or so.  When our children were young, we met during the summer so the cousins could spend time together.  When the children grew older, October became "sister time".  


Along Virginia Rt. 20 near the entrance to Montpelier, home of President James Madison.

See y'all in early November!!
