What a beautiful horde. Tell us when it goes please. If only someone was giving away in Louisiana :)

I have a friend in N. Carolina who would make the trip but she won't get there for another few weeks.

Hello, and OT but just when did the media folks and others start
referring to the boundaries between states as "borders"? When I was a
lad they were called "state lines". "Borders" separated countries.
Sincerely,

Hello, and yes, in a general sense they're all "borders". But that word
wasn't always used as a catch-all for all political boundaries. Imagine
if an overnight accommodation from decades ago with the moniker "State
Line Motel" had been named instead "Border Line Motel" Now, about that
Gen-X overused word "literally"... Sincerely,
