No, I didn't overparty last weekend - I don't even drink - but I did see a pink elephant during my travels this week. When I stopped to visit, I found he had friends.



















The elephant and his buddies were up in Stafford, VA. I was also in Spotsylvania, where I found the Civil War Soldier's Life Museum. The most unusual thing I saw there was the two bullets which met in mid-air and were permanently fused together.



They had an excellent display of firearms from the period - caplock rifles, pistols, and accoutrements.






Hi-tech (for the time) artillery.










Ordinary items of daily soldier life - cards, eating utensils, pictures, shaving stuff.
