Thank you, Patsy, for sharing the great photos of our 1st President. Are you baking a cherry pie today? My Mother did on George's birthday.

Smiles,

That is one place I have always wanted to visit. Maybe someday. I have to stick close to home because of Mom and her senility. Your picture of it in spring is just so pretty.

That was interesting. Amazing the discoveries that can be made with forensics.

I cannot tell a lie when I say, "Happy Birthday to George" today! I do miss that most younger people do not know the actual birthdays of Lincoln and Washington and we celebrated them every school year.
