I dropped Kyle off at work today and since I was in the neighborhood I stopped at Mount Vernon. I hadn't been in several years and was surprised at how many new "things" exist on the grounds. Probably the most significant is the "Visitors Center" which is a relatively large building but well designed so that it blends into everything. I walked around for about an hour but did not go into the house. It was hot and humid. Admittedly, the mid-80s isn't hot for this part of the world but for this part of me, it was plenty hot. And this poor blacksmith, wow. He was really hot.
