    Thank you, Marie and Heather. It was fun to do.

    I've always thought maps of all kinds are fascinating. When I was a small child, even before I learned to read, my dad had an illustrated map of the U.S. Civil War and it was always a huge treat when I was allowed to look at it! I had to be very careful with it. It disappeared at some point; I suppose my parents got tired of me asking to see it!
