Greetings From Michigan

I'm down here in Elkins right now sitting in a hotel room.
Just came from Scenica Rocks. We sheered some sheep down there, now we having a day off before we head home to enjoy it here.
I poped over to virginia yesterday and ate, and visited a friend. Were just lollygagging our way home.
Gonna go find a bar here or something tonight. My 2 coworkers are zonked out on the beds right now. The one was ready to go to the bar a minute ago. hahaha, then just fell asleep.

Who were you sheering sheep for at Seneca Rocks?

I am originally from Franklin, and know a lot of people down there.

You are about an hour east of me right now.

My grandfather had the Ford dealership in Franklin, we also sold Ford and Massey Fergason tractors.

I knew Buck when I lived there.
We are even related through my grandmother somehow.

I am not sure If i got to meet Buck or not, But joe is a great guy. He really took care of us.


Now i'm sitting in elkins, buddies in the jail. f&($$%

Bar maid called the cops to ambush them outside a few blocks from the bar when they got the car.
WTF is that? They parked 2 blocks from the hotel, and walked the rest of the way to the bar. They let the one guy go and took the one to jail, they woudlnt' let me take the car either.

Dang... that sounds like a bad time. Hope it turns out ok for you all.

You're about an hour from me too. I'll be there tomorrow for a little bit to take my little girl for a doctor visit.

I called the general store in Seneca Rocks about 10 years ago and asked them if they would sell the Ford Tractors sign that is on the old building. They laughed and said, "no its not for sale, we get a couple calls a week about that sign" Oh well... I admire it every year on my way to Carlisle
