The Plums Are Lost In The Past "Clue XXVI"





N 40 degrees 51.736 minutes W 74 degrees 34.184 minutes


Upon entering the next region the Plums found it was very famous during the Revolutionary War period; they noticed many museums not only about the war but involving such things as the Art & Crafts movement, works by America’s leading 19 century political cartoonist, Thomas Nast, who lived across the avenue from Macculloch Hall. Nast is known for popularizing the Republican Elephant, Democratic Donkey, and America’s image of Santa Claus, along with historical, national and county parks.

Oh my, the Colonel and America found a place for lunch and “bold” Mrs. Plum asked for Marley to have his picture taken with Santa who was dining at the Randolph Diner with his wife! Santa, at age 83, surprised her with suggesting she sit on Santa’s lap and all 3 would have their picture taken by the Maitre d’, so she did while the Colonel laughed and laughed.


About 4p.m. Mr. and Mrs. Plum arrived at Mr. Plum’s cousin’s house on Sky Drive. There they had dinner with drinks and talked late into the night. The next morning brought coffee, photo albums and a great breakfast! After eating the cameras came out and snapshots were had of and by all. A very nice visit but now the Plums are heading home.


The Colonel in an excellent mood after having spent time with his cousin a Russell and his wife Chris, jested that he had to go by George Washington’s headquarters to make sure he wasn’t still camped there.
