Thanks Max. Are there avatars and signature banners that we can use for other forums. I'm a member on several and would like to use a sig banner if thats allowed.

Something like this?



*finger snap*... you just reminded me that I was supposed to get some of these together.  Nice job, btw.

Now: Jacksonville, Florida (pop. lots and lots)
Before retiring in '03: 31 years on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Millington, Maryland pop. about 350 (near Chestertown),

After looking at the google maps on here the other day, I googled our home in Maryland and then sort of toured the area, really a virtual drive through town, it was very cool. Thanks for the inspiration. Ruth

We loved Ocean City and the board walk and boardwalk fries. We were also very fond of Rehobeth Beath, a little smaller in Delaware.
The water was cold! I planned to grow old in Maryland but my husband died and it was too sad to be where we loved. So I am living near my entire family here in Florida. (Not a huge family but a great one.) We all relocated here from all over the same year.

This is really interesting to find people coming together on this project from so many places. A worthy cause. Ruth

I had shared with Ruth in an email that I used to live not but a few miles from where she lives now in the outskirts of Jacksonville, FL.  Today's outskirts...tomorrow's downtown.  Jacksonville is growing VERY fast! It is indeed a small world!

Dave and I are vacationing in Fenwick Island! We were shopping in Rehoboth this afternoon--outlet shopping is the best! And no sales tax!

We love this area too. My parents have a condo here in Fenwick--Dave and I spend at least a week each summer here since they got the place. And a few trips in the off season too.

I grew up on Long Island, so the water here seems like just the right temperature.  :)

You can't beat shopping in Delaware! Plus it is a beautiful area. Grotto's pizza place, near the main corner in Rehobeth (I think it is a chain now), meant summertime to us. Great memories.

I grew up in Miami so the ocean always seemed freezing there to me, my husband was from the UP of Michigan, he found it toasty.
Enjoy that vacation, wish I was there (and maybe 10-15 years younger). Ruth
