    I'm in Shepherdstown, a small town just south over the Potomac River from Sharpsburg, MD, and north of Harpers Ferry, WV.
    Anybody else out this way? I think the folks in Jefferson, MD are pretty close..

    Hi, neighbors!!!

    DitzzyChic, luv your avi!

    Right now, I only have one hen. I adopted her from an animal shelter about three years ago. She looks a lot like a Welsummer, but doesn't lay dark brown eggs, light brown ones instead.
    Anyway, she's sitting on eggs: 4 araucanas, 3 RIR, 3 American Dominique.
    The RIR's are due today!
    This is a new experience for me, first attempt with 4 RIR egg's didn't go well, so I'm hoping for the best now.
    Going out to check on Millie and her eggs now....wish us luck![​IMG]

    We were in Shepardstown one year looking at buying a lot along the river one year just for a place to come and fish (never did buy anything though). Yes Jefferson MD is pretty close to where you are. We are southern PA and Jefferson MD is about a 40 minute drive from where we are at.

    We do go to Charlestown Race track a few times a year to watch the horses run and sometimes play the slots. That is an hour drive from where we are at! I like the drive because it takes you past Harpers Ferry. WV is a nice place to visit.

    Cool! Of course, we're only about 20 minutes from the track, but I've only been there three times and only for the slots ( I'm about $1.75 up! [​IMG] )
    Harpers Ferry is beautiful, seems like a picture postcard from about every angle!
    Glad to know you guys are close, welcome 'neighbors'!! [​IMG]
