A little culture

Every once in a while, we venture out from our little suburban enclave to take advantage of some of the cultural offerings available nearby.  Part of my brother’s Christmas gift to various members of the family was to take a whole bunch of us downtown to see A Christmas Carol at Ford’s Theater.

The program

The first stop was a tour through the Ford's Theater museum. Here are my three nieces with a life-size statue of Lincoln

Lincoln's last life mask, taken in 1865

The gun used by John Wilkes Booth to kill Lincoln

Always humbling to sit in the theater and see the box where Lincoln was shot.

No pictures/video of the play (since getting thrown out of Ford’s Theater is never good for the resumé), but it was fantastic.

    A good time was had by all. We take a great deal for granted living in the DC area. The “whole row” of family was special. What a Christmas gift. Thanks. And by the way, the show was TREMENDOUS.
