I remember when we went to see the Exorcist, when we were working in Rochester.
It was something else, of course we had to drive through foggy marsh on the way back, no one was talking. Then we looked at each other at the same time and we scared each other!!
We laughed all the way back to the Heartbreak Hotel.
