Noble Mason Raines, Jr. and his wife JoAn Shupe-Raines

I had the honor of staying with Mason and his lovely wife this year for one of the nicest weekends that I can remember.  On Friday, I arrived.  JoAn had cooked one of the finest dinners one can imagine and it was ready to eat when I arrived.   Mason, his brother Fred, Mary Lou Raines (his sister) and her husband (Harold Eugene Jones), and JoAn spent a wonderful evening with each other.  The next morning Mason and I set out for Staffordsville and Trigg, Virginia.  It was really a wonderful experience that I will never forget.
