I’ve been taught never to contradict very, very old ladies, so I concur with Charity and Zerelda.
Maybe they know the answer because they’ve met this Sergeant Corbett in person when they were young (I just hope he didn’t castrate himself because of their advances…).

Holy Cow - I just read his story on Wilkipedia. This man was truly a Mad Hatter. Nutt'ier than a fruitcake.

Good Morning, Nate. Thank you for your comment about Gebo WY on my blog. I feel honored.... a famous person noted my blog!
However, I am extremely curious how you found my blog as it isn't searchable. The only thing I can think is that months ago I used to sign comments on OPOD using my google blog account. After someone told me about 'name/URL' that's all I've used. It's much easier. Let me know, please. Thanks.

Judi, I must be following your blog as it came up on my Blogger homepage - probably from a long time ago. I noticed the interesting photo and clicked on the link. Every year (for the last five years), I've taken my students out to a new graveyard to conduct a cemetery survey - part of my effort to make local history research relevant and fun for them. I think the interesting gravesite you photographed must have caught my eye.
