My World Tuesday: A Polar Moment in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

We stopped in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Sunday morning to buy some baby gifts at Artworks and to get Clyde out for a stretch of the ol' legs. The shopping was a success, but the day was bitter cold and blowy, so we lasted for about two blocks before we high-tailed it back to the car and headed farther south to Mount Vernon, the home of George and Martha Washington. Before the cold crept into our bones, I took a few quick shots of a store window. I really liked the dreamy grandeur of the display of paintings Lincoln, Jefferson and Washington.

  14. I like the mix of old statesmen with classic Christmas. They gave me sense of history in a Dickens sort of way. Seasons Greetings!
