Winner and answers

Patti Nielson won! Woohoo! One of our lovely Canadian neighbors was the first to guess Thomas Jefferson's home. Patti, let me know which way you would like your prize.

We stayed in Charlottesville, VA and visited Monticello (home of Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd president and writer of The Declaration of Independence--so many amazing things there--Jefferson was a very clever man), Montpelier (home of James Madison, our 4th president--that's where the templed hill was), Ashlawn-Highland (home of James Monroe, our 5th president--the house with the coolest dining room table), and the Michie Tavern (that's the place with the 4-seater privy and the heated plate)--if you ever get the chance to eat there, take it, and drink the apple cider. It's delicious as is the food.

Honorable Mention to Mary Kay who figured out all the specifics before they were announced. There were some interesting facts in Friday's comments.

I'm sorry I didn't play. I didn't do a lot of blogging last week. I just had fun looking at the wonderful photos, though :)

Apparently, word verification doesn't stop the spam comments.
