Mount Vernon

We love free things!! Mount Vernon, George Washington's home, was free of charge on President's Day and we were four of MANY who attended. It was busy, cold and windy, but we had a great time.

I was standing at the bus stop with my kids this morning and we were enjoying the warmer air and the breeze, but then I felt a little uneasy and I wasn't sure why. Moments later I noticed three vultures circling over us and they were getting lower with each swoop. They're big birds, and why were they focused on us...what they heck? We're all showered know... still living. My youngest hides under my arm, and I'm sniffing myself to see if their attention on us has any merit. I'm not bragging but I smelled a not dead kind of way. Hey vultures, I'm offended.
