That's a fascinating piece about Zoe.

I buy most of my cards at the dollar stores for 50 cents each, except for the ones that go to Himself, the daughter and the son, and the grandchildren. Really, the dollar stores have a damned decent selection--the cards just have briefer wishes. I always decorate the envelopes with stickers and the latest issue of postage stamps.

Where were we, on "C"? Oh, this is too easy--

Cleveland, Ohio!

Thanks for the link, Charlie. I bookmarked it and will explore sometime soon. That's a gorgeous photo of Daytona Beach--must've been taken towards the southern end, near Ponce Inlet. I don't think we've been back to the beach itself since we moved here in June of 1978.

OK, let me find an "E"...

El Segundo, CA--I think Sanford & Son often mentioned it, and in a rather derisive way.

Just today, my mother informed me I have a bunch of ancestors buried in an old cemetery in Hannibal. Perhaps I should pay them all a visit :)

That would be pretty ghoul, er, cool. I expect you'd research it on the Net first, though.

Ketchum, Idaho

Ketchum%2BIdaho.jpg

In 1880, the Town of Ketchum, named after David Ketchum, a trapper and guide, was one of the richest mining districts in the Northwest. By the early 1890's, the price of silver declined and the mining boom ended. By 1890, a new industry appeared in Ketchum. Sheepmen from the South drove their herds through Ketchum to summer grazing in the Sawtooth, Boulder and Pioneer Mountains. By 1920, Ketchum was the largest sheep/lamb shipping station in the U.S.

In 1935, the Union Pacific Railroad came to town attracting passengers to a destination ski resort called Sun Valley. Gambling flourished during 1937 to 1947, then in 1954 gambling was totally banned.

In 1973, the Sawtooth Recreation Area opened its doors north of Ketchum, making Ketchum the gateway to the Sawtooths. Ketchum is now a year-round resort/recreation area. The annual Wagon Days parade held on Labor Day weekend featuring over 100 non-motorized entries, including the original Lewis Ore Wagons, is the town's annual celebration of its rich pioneer and mining heritage

Rogers Park, the northeasternmost area of Chicago

(Lived here in the early 70's and again in the mid-80's, as did my grandmother in the Fifties and Sixties)

(Around 1968, it had its very own hippie newspaper...called "The Roger Spark")
