|I stayed home.|
The folks started their lunch off with an appetizer. They chose a Scotch Egg.
|It is a hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage, breaded and then deep fried.|
Mom ordered a Irish Whiskey Burger. It had whiskey cheese on it. The onions rings were in a beer batter.
Dad had the Whiskey Sausage Sandwich.
They said the food was good, but we didn't get to try any because THEY ATE IT ALL. :::sigh:::
They then headed to the Gettysburg Museum of History.
|These people were on a tour and they were slow.|
|Locks of hair belonging to George and Martha Washington. It is in the center of the photo on the pillow.|
|Abraham Lincoln's wallet.|
|A lock of Lincoln's hair.|
|Foot stool that belonged to Hitler.|
|Yes, JFK's boxer shorts. Is nothing private?|
|I guess not because this is Marilyn Monroe's bra.|
|This is a gun found in the water at Normandy Beach.|
|Elvis' hair brush. Seriously? Mom thought his brush would have been nicer.|
|One of Elvis' prescription bottles.|
|A pillow that Jacklyn Kennedy had in the White House|
The folks spoke to the owner and he said he has been receiving threats because he carries Confederate items. He said he has been placed on some sort of a watch list. Seriously? It is history folks. He has T-shirts that say "I would rather be historically correct than politically correct". Mom told him he needs magnets with that on it. He said he hadn't thought of that, but he is going to order some.
The folks said that there is a lot to see and do in Gettysburg, so they will be returning.
On a sad note.... Scout is getting worse. I don't think it will be much longer before she leaves us for the Rainbow Bridge. We had a treat party today. Scout still loves treats. We also had fried chicken for lunch. Yum! Mom made a ton of frozen treats for us to enjoy.
