Hi Marilyn! I see that you were born in NY...Might I ask where? I was, too, but have been in VA for 37 years now. I grew up in upstate NY, about midway between Syracuse and Oswego, in a little village called Phoenix. Then, when I was first married, we were in Grand Forks, ND...hubby was in the Air Force. He went overseas for about 1-1/2 years and I went back to NY. Then, later, we came to VA. Anyway, I'm always interested when I see that someone grew up in NY to see if we were anywhere near each other.
