Thanks, Lisa. I'm just about ready to go to bed. I am feeling better, and don't anticipate any headaches or anything tomorrow (later today). It's Michael's 5th birthday tomorrow, so Judi plans to make him a cake. Normally she would probably wait until Wednesday, when Daddy would be off work, but Harry has to work Wednesday again this week, so there's no use waiting, as his next day off won't be until the FOLLOWING Wednesday. He has a crazy schedule. This is his long work week. So unless Judi gets Michael's cake made before 3 PM, Daddy will just have to say Happy Birthday on the fly, and have his cake to eat later. :-(

I just found two neat pictures that illustrate this challenge very well!!!

These are from a neat pictorial history of the Civil War areas, from the wartime AND the present standpoint.

"The gateway to the cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, July 1863. It was built nine years before the battle at Gettysburg, which lasted three days and resulted in 51,000 casualties."...

It looks to me like this was the gateway as it was being built, and it probably had the building attached to it that is in the next picture, by the time of the Battle of Gettysburg.

Still...it's a good example of an enduring piece of architecture that has had changes made!

Me too! I didn't have time to listen to any of the commentaries, but hoping to do so some day. The pictures were great, though!
