Dee,
 As I mentioned a while back ago. Ill be in the New England area in October. We are staying at Sturbridge Mass on the 10th and the 11th leaving on the 12th I was hoping I could talk my hubby in going down to your area on the 12th. I have no idea how long it will take for us to drive down to where you are at I know at least a couple of hours. Is there any way I could meet you on the 12th? I did see where you have a class on the 13th for the Overlay class. I might could talk him into going to that one if we could not meet on the 12th. We are suppose to be in Maine on the 12th to check into our bed and breakfst by 6 that I know of. Let me know if we can do it or not. I understand if we cant I know its a big inconvience to do all of this run around. Thanks for looking into this for me. Blessings, Sherri
