Dillsburg & Fates

Tonight I drove back from York via Pennsylvania Rte 74 N. York is a gorgeous town. It’s huge, urban, fabulous. There is a vacuum hospital. Can you imagine? I don’t need to imagine anymore! But about 20 miles later, 74 cuts through Dillsburg, and as I drove through I was swept back in time a […]
