    Now McCain picks a female running mate. I think he sealed his faith. Sorry. I will let this thread rest.

    I agree with all of the above. And now that we have the female card added to the fray with McCain's pick I can say this: I've lived long enough to see a man on the moon, to see the Red Sox win the World Series, the Patriots win the Super Bowl, and now a truly historic presidential race. With geocaching added to my life, how heady can this be?

    You know, my grandmother was born in 1900 and she used to tell me how lucky she had been. She saw one brother born in the living room and another brother die on the kitchen table while being operated on for a ruptured appendix. She went from horse and buckboard for daily transportation to see her father own the first "automobile" in Somerset County. From no electricity to an electrified house. She saw the newspaper stories about the Wright Brothers (man can fly!) and watched on television as Neil Armstrong placed his foot on the moon. She worked for years at Lakewood Theater and, at 5'1", she supported a 6'2" very intoxicated Vincent Price back to his cabin. When she got him to his door, (her name was Gladys) Vincent Price announced that instead of calling her glad-ass, from now on he would call her "happy-bottom"...and from then on he did.

    Vic is absolutely correct.....these are historic times. No matter the outcome, revel in the fact that you were there. And be content to remember. Happy caching everyone.
