Revolutionary War Museums can be fun.

 

Really, they can.

For example…. is it me?

  1. Well that explains why they call football fields, the gridiron. Those shoes look like they could be worn today, not by me of course but Baby Kermit seems to have a pair almost like them. How interesting, and yes, Mr. Revere does seem to have a resemblance to Jack Black.

      1. Yeah…pretty much. And she thinks she’s still like twenty-something because she has ridiculously long hair. Like below her bum, and all one length, no shape or style. It just hangs there….

  2. That looks like the sort of museum that would make sure you know Benjamin Franklin wrote an essay called “Fart Proudly”. Ol’ Ben really was quite a character.
    Although now I can’t get the Paul Revere/Black Jack comparison out of my head and I imagine him singing something for the British after he was captured.

  3. I literally remember the snow shoes from the museum, at first thinking they were like the ones worn to keep skirts clean.
    My grandparents had a gridiron – on occasion, they used it for fresh fish. My grandmother would wrap the fish in metal screen and staple it, then put it in the gridiron. I had no idea about the sugar, thank you.
    YES, he did resemble Jack Black! I see it plain as day!
