What to do...what to do?

This week will most likely be the best I'm going to feel for the next five months or so. (I'll have six weeks of recovering from surgery, followed by three months of chemotherapy.) So, I decided to do something fun (instead of going to work). I had never been to Antietam Battlefield and being a Civil War fan, why not go?

I don't know a lot about that battle, but now that I've seen the battlefield, I can do some reading and understand it better. It was a great day for site-seeing (except for the millions of gnats in the fields.)

On the way home, I drove through Leesburg. I was stopped at a stoplight in the left lane. Something on the median moved and caught my eye. It was a rooster! What the? I wasn't next to a farm or anything. Now...we all know the chicken crossed the road to get to the other side. But, why did the rooster cross the road? We still don't know because he wasn't very responsive to my interrogation.
