The Eastern Shore All Stars - Part Two of Two

When we left you last time, Wonder Woman and I were leaving Grayson Chesser's Hunting Lodge and continuing our tour of Eastern Shore Decoy Carver All Stars by heading to Cameron McIntyre's home a few miles away. Cameron had told me that our GPS wouldn't find his place but I didn't believe him - that is, until I realized we were either going to run out of road or drive into Chesapeake Bay. Sheepishly I called him and told him we were lost, but he said he could see us well past his house which is pretty much hidden from view. He doesn't exactly live in the middle of nowhere; but if you look really hard, you can see it from there.

I'm always getting sidetracked - stopping in a hallway to talk with someone about an article for H&FC, running into someone I'd been meaning to talk with ever since last year's show... You know how it goes. But, although I never seem to get to more than about half of the rooms, I always seem to come back home with at least a few prizes that, before I spotted them, I didn't know I couldn't live without.
