Little White House

On Saturday Sydney and I got to play at the "Little White House".
Former President Franklin Roosevelt lived and died here.I don't know if this is true but FDR was (supposedly)
in the middle of having his portrait painted when he died.
That is a picture of it and it is called (SURPRISE!)
"The Unfinished Portrait".
This is Jacob "Bunn" Wright. He was Mr. Emit's
(The man who invited us to play there) great uncle.
He was supposedly outside waiting to play for FDR
when he died. (FDR not Jacob Wright).

FDR's Bed

Syd and I thought this was funny.
Old Toilet Paper. =)

FDR's Desk


Jacob "Bunn" Wright's Fiddle, Picture, Shoes, and Hat.


Acting like FDR and Eleanor.
(It was funny talking to them because they were
pretending to REALLY be the FDR and his wife.)

The Stove

The gate. Since FDR couldn't use his legs his car was made so that he could drive it using his hands. This gate was so he could "bump" his car into it to open it.

Tuning.
Notice the heater. It was SO cold and I could hardly
move my fingers while playing. After we had played
a while we took a break and had sandwiches. One of
the guy's there was "toasting" his with the heater.
(Talk about red-neck cooking!)
Testing the microphone

Playing.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot
