For many years, the big brown sign on I-84 has been calling me to stop in Hartford, Connecticut, to see the home of "Mark Twain" the author of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and many other books and short stories. It finally happened!
His house and the museum nearby were impressive!
Timothy was reading studying about Mark Twain while we were in Indiana, and I remembered we were passing his house, and we had rare spare time when I could bring the kids without interrupting Paul's schedule. Tim distinguished himself while there too. A lady fell down on the steps and hurt her ankle. Tim helped her get down the rest of the LONG flight of stairs and get to the first aid people at the front desk. The lady was so impressed with how helpful he was "and such a gentleman! He even called me ma'am." :-) It does a mother's heart good to have people recognize good things in our children.
