Busy week - the spring planting season is well under way, and even up here in the valley, they're plowing while the sun shines, and Rockview has work gangs out in the fields, doing their annual rock-patrol in the fields. You'd think that after two hundred years of cultivation, the fields would be pretty well free of rocks, but you'd be wrong...

The first volume of Beatie's Army of the Potomac history arrived last week, and I've been cruising along when I have the time. It seems like my kind of history - not so much with the narrative, true, but more like an ambling series of anecdotes. Since I find the anecdotes amusing, it's all good, I suppose.
