Folk Art ~ We the People…


Can you read this? Isn’t it clever? This was in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.

This was one of my favorite museums to visit in Washington D.C. The truth of the matter, is my favorite museums and places to visit were ones that weren’t over the top noisy and filled with 20 or more school tour groups. Loud, out of control, disrespectful groups especially at Memorials were very disappointing and distracting. I was a school teacher and I do enjoy children but there was nothing in some of their behavior that needed to be enjoyed. This was my least favorite thing about Washington D.C. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

Yesterday was a glorious sunny day here in the Seattle area. I pulled a lot of weeds and cleaned up some planters. Today I’ll be mowing the lawn. Hope your day is good…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Hey, I WAS able to figure that out! Very cool! I’m glad you’re enjoying your weather. We have our first heat wave of the year – 108 expected today! Ugh!

  2. very unique! I doubt I got it all as I’m Canadian and only hear this from my American grandkids or on TV. But I certainly got most of it!

  3. This is cool, Ellen! I totally empathize with what you said about noisy and disrespectful crowds. We were at Mount Vernon over the weekend, and the place was filled with LOUD school trip and tour groups! We are going back on a week day soon. Hopefully, we would have a better experience.

  4. That is one crazy sign. The girls were commenting on how rude all the kids groups were. They were not impressed with the educational world back east. Rude and some of the groups were far too young to be at certain musuems….CRAZY people. (c: But also very sad. I think I”m getting old….”what is the world coming to?” thoughts run through my mind more. (c:

  5. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Thanks so much for sharing your finds in D.C. Wish you could figure out when kids are not touring to make your next visit a little less irksome.

  6. Preamble to the Constitution, I’ve had that one memorized since I was a wee lil Andrew. Always loved it and that is a pretty awesome way of displaying it.

    As for noisy disrespectful kids. Leather belts work well.
