A few more pictures from Colonial Williamsburg. Yes, it's hot, hot, hot, as it is everywhere on the East Coast this week. That pale afternoon sky tells the whole story, doesn't it?
But at least I found plenty of greenery to offer shade, as well as cheery pink phlox blossoms peeking through the white-washed fence. I'll let the string of straw hats with their streaming ribbons hint at my blog tomorrow, showing how the 18th c. ladies are keeping cool.
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
