A Sleepy Hollow Update of Sorts

Even though I've got lots of pictures to post from our recent trip down to The Big Apple (the picture above was taken by Jamie), I wanted to take a moment and post something that I got in my email the other day that I thought was exceptionally cool - at least to me!

Remember our recent road-trip to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Tarrytown, New York? -

Shortly after I posted about the trip, I got the following email:
Linda,

Nice article, and great photos. Hope you get to see the Irving stained glass on your next visit.

-Jim Logan

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Historic Fund

Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591
I emailed Jim back to tell him thank you and that we were tentatively planning another trip back down in mid-October for Amy's birthday when we could also see the Scarecrow Festival at Lyndhurst and the Jack-o-Lantern Blaze at Phillipsburg Manor - not to mention see some more of the cemetery. Shortly after that I got another email from Jim ...
Linda,

Chances are the office will not be open on the weekend. As the date gets closer, shoot me an email and I'll arrange for someone to open up the chapel so you can see the stained glass.
By the way, we've added you to our "in the news" page: http://sleepyhollowcemetery.org/welcome/about/in-the-media/

-Jim Logan
Now is that not the coolest thing ever that someone would take the time to have someone meet us so that we can see the stained glass windows if the office is closed? See? It pays to blog about your travels! It's also pretty darned cool that I now have a link off of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery website - almost makes me feel like a professional travel writer!

Thanks again, Jim, I'm really looking forward to October!
