Reeds Visit

The Reeds came all the way from Broomfield to see us (and Washington DC, if they have time). We enjoyed going to Gettysburg with them yesterday. It was a great opportunity to visit a spectacular place and catch up on old times as we drove up. It reminded me of my youth in Billings, Montana. When people came to town we always took them to Custer's Last Stand. Gettysburg is just like that, but bigger, greener, more interesting and more significant in the history of our nation! When we go there we feel we are on hallowed ground. Here Ed and Bruce are discussing battle strategy from the top of Little Round Top.

The group shot taken in front of the monument at Little Round Top includes Marita, Bruce, Fallyn, Ethan, Judy and Ed.

We topped the day off with a visit to Five Guys to enjoy some of Maryland's famous (but, sadly, not heart-healthy) hamburgers and fries.


  1. The older I get the more discontent I become with the lack of water in the West.

  2. You are so right. Gettysburg is truely hallowed ground. I've only been once, but it is on the all time must visit lists there are.
