Dparker, I don't blame you for getting turned around, it's easy to on those roads.

If getting lost on the back roads of Virginia is the worst thing to happen to you, you've led a blessed life.

New Tag



Watch the above Video. The tag is the grave of the soldier immortalized in this Old Crow Medicine Show song "Leevi".

Leevi K. Barnard’s family described him as a quiet man with a dry sense of humor, a very private but thoughtful person who liked to read Plato and “The Art of War.” He also enjoyed sports, particularly playing on the church softball team and fantasy football.

“To me, if there ever was a hero, he was a hero,” said Thomas Barnard, his grandfather.

Barnard, 28, of Mount Airy, N.C., died May 21,2009 near Baghdad of wounds suffered when his unit was attacked. He was assigned to Fayetteville, N.C.

He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in Arabic studies.

“He knew how to make you laugh, and if he didn’t make you laugh, he knew how to make you smile,” said Dianne Orr, a friend.







I've tagged this spot before in a local tag game but with Veterans Day tomorrow I thought it was appropriate to pay a visit again.

They weren't closed, I traded $23 worth with that lady. We talked about the weather, some of the crafts and how we were doing.
