I replied to your comment, Roseanna (lovely name) yesterday, but was unable at that time to furnish the name of the city in North Carolina (my home state) where Lilian and Earl live. I can do that now. They live in Tryon, located somewhat north of Charlotte, N.C. (that might be SOUTH of Charlotte, will have to check out Map Quest.
It is almost a direct route from Tryon up to Oneida, New York where I now live and have for a lot of years, still am not used to the winters up here - we are loaded up with snow fall even as I speak.
Gosh ! your blog has been up a long time, just noticed October 15th, 2009 ! My contact with Earl was just last year. I also talked with Blanche Gregory, Lilian's manager (last year) who lives in NYC, near where I once worked when I lived down there for a short time.
