Down on the Farm: Renovations
In the summer of 1981, Mom and Dad loaded up the family in the Dodge and took us for our first family trip east.
Looking back, I think they went east to appease their eldest son's interest in history.
We visited Washington, D. C. and then headed out to see George Washington's Mt. Vernon.
A few old signs led us to the house. We parked up near the mansion and went up to the door where a guide let us in.
