Off to PA! The entrance to Rob's mother's family's ancestral farm in Covington, PA

Covington's about 45 minutes south of Elmira, NY,
or as Rob put it in the invitation, "equally far from everywhere!"

The farm was absolutely beautiful. Here's a view from the (1860) house,
overlooking the pond and what's called the coop, cuz it used to be one (now the party building).

Here's (most of) the group. Except for a few spouses (and Craig's kids, lol),
we all graduated Syracuse in 1979 or 1980. Which makes us, like, almost fifty.

Robin and me shucking corn for thirty. We were representing Jersey.

Ken and Rob have the chicken under control

Carol and Tina made delicious blueberry and peach pies.

Carol had picked the blueberries up in Maine and graphic artist Tina made the top crusts beautiful!
