INGOING AND OUTGOING
We were visiting Mount Vernon, the estate of George Washington, and this lovely lady was in the role of Martha Washington. She was friendly and charming and didn't miss a beat even when Henry dropped himself down right next to her. He was interested in her voluminous skirts (and he also enjoys patting plump people, probably for the reverberation sensation) but she couldn't have been nicer about it. She didn't break character for one second and continued to chatter away in the most friendly and agreeable manner imaginable. I wanted to take her home with us!
