Steve and I went to Mount Vernon today. After watching the HBO series John Adams, it’s surprising we waited this long. I especially wanted to see and meet Martha Washington. Now I know she is just a character actress, (and a shockingly good one at that), but I have a soft spot for her. Every Haloween when I was a kid I would dress up as Martha Washington and spend next few hours gathering candy while indignantly pointing out I was not Betsy Ross or a ghost. I loved Martha Washington. I believe this started around 4 1/2, possibly after my one other visit to Mount Vernon with my Dad. So being the nerd that I am and having a soft spot for my childhood, I thought meeting Martha would be great and I was right. Today’s sketch is her having tea at Mount Vernon.
