Teddy Roosevelts House

It was a nice day today with a high of 42! It felt like spring time after the cold weather that we've been having. PJ and I decided to go for a spin in the MGB and take a ride up to Teddy Roosevelts house. But first, PJ had to check on something at work so we sent there first. I was sitting in the car when all of a sudden a goat goes walking by! It was so bizarre! By the time I got my camera out, the goat was almost out of sight. Very strange. PJ said he sees the goat every day.The track looks so different in the winter.
Off to Teddy's house. It was so nice riding with the top down. It was colder than we thought but it still felt so good to have the sun shinning on us.
The picture below is his house but I didn't take it. Notice the leaves on the trees! We sat in the rocking chairs waiting for the 3:00 tour. The conversations that the people around us should have been rated X! Everyone was talking about SEX! So strange! I actually commented to PJ asking if we're on Candid Camera or something!

While sitting in the chairs, a man was playing with his dog. It was so entertaining. This dog was very friendly and very well trained. Sit, back up, speak, go to the right, go to the left, lay down.... the dog instantly did it all! The man would throw the ball out into the field and the dog would fetch it and put it next to the mans feet. The man would throw it 30 feet in the air and the dog 100% of the times, caught it in his mouth!

The tour was ok. The guide was like listening to Steve Erkel. I stopped listening after a while. It was fun to do something different though.
The ride home was cold and fast! No side roads... just get on the main roads and get home to warm up!


  1. We had a heat wave here too over the weekend - 64 degrees! Ya hoo! Bring on spring. Looks like you had a fun weekend. :)
