….and still waiting for the Spring weather to arrive and stay for more than a few hours!! Our rain and occasional windstorms have kept me from doing anything much (except grumbling about the weather!) hence my lack of recent posts. David has been in Amsterdam pretty frequently and it certainly looks as though Spring has sprung there –
which has also meant he’s back to getting some biking in although apparently the bugs have been a little bit of a problem, hahaha 😉
Luckily one of our few and far between warm and sunny afternoons happened to coincide with a visit to the Seattle Museum of History & Industry to see a musical interpretation of one of my neighbor’s books. Here’s a little information from her (Judy Bentley’s) website about it…
Free Boy, A True Story of Slave and Master, tells the story of a thirteen-year-old boy who escaped from Washington Territory to freedom in 1860 on the West Coast’s underground railroad. Charles Mitchell was the property of James Tilton, Surveyor General of Washington Territory, and this book is a twined biography of the two.
Read an interview with Judy in the Madison Courier, published in Madison, Indiana.
…and yes, of course we did Happy Hour first! 🙂
