yes, we must have a gathering of the Southern Tier Mudcatters sometime soon, eh?

I got a card a couple weeks ago from a woman who is organizing the opening of a time capsule buried by my sixth grade class in 1976...I think it is on October 28th, which probably means I won't make it (as I would be celebrating Samhain somewhere, maybe in the UK, maybe in Boston, but not likely Elmira...) but who knows?

Anyway, I was the second prize winner with my contribution of a 1976 world almanac; the kid that won first place donated a portable TV set...sadly, the school building was torn down years ago (even an old maple planted by the school's namesake was razed for a block of ugly split-level houses) but they removed the capsule for safe-keeping until the year 2000. It is hard to believe 24 years have passed...

on second thought, it's not too early for that whisky...
