Yeah, they were good too, I was stationed in Newport, RI for well over a
year. Rock beaches, cold water, good fishing, rock fences, rock houses,
rock barns, rock soup. Lots of rocks. I was also totally amazed at the
Acadian folk who had dropped off around Pawtucket on the trip to Louisiana.
Were your ancestors originally French Acadians or what?

It's surprising how tolerant we southerners are of Yankees. Most of us
figure it isn't your fault that you weren't born in the south. Texans are
the worse ones of the lot, we truly pity folk who weren't born in Texas. <VBG>
