Because I Have a Life …


… that I try to live mostly in the real world, I spent the afternoon enjoying a nice drive in the country. I wound up in Northern Virginia just south of Winchester. My great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather settled in that area. He had previously lived near what is now Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania,  and New Jersey after coming from Scotland in 1680.

The spots on the marker are from raindrops. It wound up being a rainy day, but was still a beautiful drive.
