Our docent

When I was stopped at a light the other morning I was able to catch a photo of our daughter Allegra in Colonial garb doing her docent thing.
She loves teaching the fifth graders who visit the Gen. David Humphreys House in our town. Humphreys was aide-de-camp to George Washington and his boyhood home is now the headquarters of the Derby Historical Society.
The 18th century house in the photo is for sale, as you can see by the sign that kinda ruins the scene.
Allegra portrays Elizabeth Clark Hull, who was the paternal grandmother of Commodore Isaac Hull, who fought in the War of 1812.

You mean to tell me they didn't have "For Sale" signs back in the 18th century?!?

Allegra looks great!

I don't think the sign ruins the photo at all!

I'm looking forward to the For Sale sign going back up at my Yellow House, followed shortly by a SOLD sign across it!

Happy Sunday, Patti! Big hugs xo
