a quarter mile! We should have shouted out
the window! We saw the new Vienna Italian Beef spot in town on the north side of the road just east of River Edge winery, we think.

Moved from Damselflies. William Edwards confirmed your ID. We just drove through Elkton today on the way back from the coast to John's brother's in Roseburg! Are you near the butterfly gardens? Thought about stopping for some of that Chicago Italian beef!

Season's Greetings Jane,
Thanks to you and William Edwards for the ID confirmation.

I'm about 3 miles from the butterfly gardens, specifically, 2 miles south of town. If you took Highway 138 to Roseburg, you passed within 1/4 mile of the house. Perhaps you and John will stop by one day if you're in the neighborhood again - got lots of bugs from March through September. The Chicago Italian beef sounds good; where is it?
