Which photo? You mean the one with two ugly dudes and two obviously near-sighted ladies in it?

GScott, are you hiding your identity? Because you look a lot like Ernie Johnson: Image.

It was too long ago--and we really enjoyed the brief time together. I had a great picture of Skip with a nice glass of red smoking a meer out on the lawn at Francis Ford Coppola's winery in St. Helena. However, I can't find it among my digital land-fill--if in fact it still exists. :|

2006. Dutch Henry's. At Prager everybody was laughing too hard to hold a camera.

I have to go looking for that other picture.

Have you ever been there?

Looking at the clock in the picture, the tins on the shelf, the angle of lighting from the window and a sensitivity (age-indication) analysis of the changes in Great Scott over the two pics, plus their clothing I think it was ... Tuesday, May 17, 2005 at 14:06 EDT +/- 4.22 minutes. Elementary, my dear Ethell. Where were you?

There is actually a next-day post on CPS that corroborates my elementary deductions. The Great Scott documents the visit ...

:D That was funny.

I grew up in Baltimore and was visiting family and decided to take the trip to Chambersburg and meet JB and Christine there. Great fun was had by all.

Growing up, my dad would take us (my mom and three brothers) into PA for apples and cider. My father who was from Va, had us spit out the window as we crossed the Mason Dixon line.

I was hoping to arrange a meetup with John-Boy down at Meade, but our schedule didn't let us get down that far this time. :(
