This is a reasonable facsimile of a campaign sign in a few places just outside of town near Lain’s preschool.

I kept wondering where Garrison County was, and why there were signs for a campaign in some county somewhere else that I’d never heard of. I mean, there are a number of counties around here since we’re by two state lines, but even so I thought I knew what they were.

Finally, I remembered to google it and discovered that there is no Garrison County. So… what the hell?

It took me way too long to figure out what was going on.

    Totally off topic but another bad sign: a local preschool has a sign out advertising “Teacher’s needed.”

    I was driving my students past it one day (on the way to a field lab) and a couple people commented “I wouldn’t let my kid go to that pre-school if that’s how lightly they treat grammar.”

    I kind of loved those students. (Yes, I am a grammar snob)

Queenland

Greetings from Stonebridge a fictitious city in a fictitious state located in a tri-state area in the interior Mid-Atlantic region. We're in western Queenland, which is really a state unto itself, and not to be confused with Queensland in Australia.

Nothing written on this site should be taken as strictly true, though if the author were making it all up rest assured the main character and his life would be a lot less unremarkable.
