“Dunkards”?
 I was not familiar with that word. Thanks to google-- The Dunkard Brethren are a small group of conservative Schwarzenau Brethren that withdrew from the Church of the Brethren in 1926.

Thanks for looking up Dunkards. I’ll have to see if they’re in my denominations book. I first read it as drunkards.

LOL, @juan  "MeToo".  At first I wonder why so many drunks are attending a church meeting discussing the use of automobiles.

Haha, @FISH  Perhaps the 'drunks' were discussing the joys of driving around while being inebriated, and sharing tales of how they survived trains hitting their cars because the booze had them feeling extra relaxed at the moment of impact.  I know, I shouldn't kid about such things.  Actually, I hate drunk drivers.

I saw the flowers you left for Burton and Nora at Find a Grave.  That was nice.  I've been thinking about joining up.  Do they let you use a username, there?

Thanks for the Find A Grave info, @FISH   I've been utilizing the site for quite a few years and I really should sign up.

Yes, that video of Enrico got pulled from page two of this thread.  (I wish people wouldn't do that.  It can make a thread look like swiss cheese.  That, and having posted pictures from photo-share sites expire after so many days.)  Thank you so much for the replacement video!
