    Unexpected things, Lori! Pierogi and Babushka are Russian words (mean pies and the grandmother). I'm surprised very much! Thanks for sharing!

    I've washed and retired my babushka outfit for the year! Sneaky Robert contacted the Chamber of Commerce and they are reprinting and mailing him a copy, drat! Hmmm, but I do know the head of the Chamber really well....

    Since my Allan grew up in this area, I'm quite interested in the information about Whiting, Lori. Great travelogues with hilarious photographs. Thanks for the vicarious experiences.
