We just got word last night that my husband's job transfer was approved so we'll be in the process of moving from one end of PA to the other. We'll still be glad to offer dinner if you're headed this way.
Currently all the shop tools are still in Gettysburg if you need repairs on the cheap :)

Having their signature cheeseburger (Shady Glen is a Manchester, CT institution, locally famous for its homemade ice cream, signature "Bernice Original" cheeseburger, vintage 1950s style diner and service. In 2012, it was recognized by the James Beard Foundation as an American Classic. This restaurant has appeared on the Food Network and the Travel Channel)

I could hardly get her to eat anything when she was here....I took her to one of my favorite :abnormal: Mexican places in town and she nibbled away at a little bit of a tiny rolled taco and that was it.. :rolleyes:

Visited Mark Twain's residence in Hartford, CT
Stop in Elmira NY tomorrow and visit him at Woodlawn cemetery. He is buried there beside his wife.

Due to rule changes at the Watkins Glen Speedway (no motorcycles allowed on the track), I did not feel comfortable leaving my bike in the overnight parking lot which are not patrolled by security so I did not get the opportunity to meet with Tom...so I continued heading West on Route and met a couple of neat ladies...one at the visitor center and the other one at the French Azilum.

Yes I was LT! It was me who discovered the rule change when I went home to drop off my van and pick up my bike. Rode 54 miles from the house back to Watkins Glen only to be informed I could not bring my motorcycle in. I showed them my parking/vehicle pass that you get with camping tickets "which are not cheap" and they told me I could enter the track property on foot and leave my bike in overnight off track parking. I felt obligated to text Gina and make her aware of this and she understandably was not comfortable leaving her bike so far away in a un-patrolled lot. Very sad day for all of us here. She was a celebrity with my family before they even met her. I really hope our paths cross again someday soon.

So would I! I'm a longtime fan of both products, even though I quit smoking around 25 years ago, I still have my old Zippo. My old Case stockman, according to the dots, is from the 1976 model year......still goin' strong.

Me three!! I love Case knives, they're the only USA made pocket knife we sell in the hardware store I work at.

I used to know a neat trick where I could flip open the top on my Zippo lighter & strike the flint wheel in one move! I can't remember how now, but I'm sure there is a youtube video for it...

One of many traveling with you in spirit, GO GINA GO!!! :icon_thumright: m.

Case kitchen knives, the whole set.. We have accumulated from the late 60's. Great knives.
Did not know there was a museum there.

Be save my friend!
