  1. It’s so cool to have friends who go to all the places I never think to go to …. and then share their magical experiences with others. Considering how close to home the center is, I am ashamed of myself for never going (did when I lived here before though). So thank you dear friend for making providing this cultural experience. Also, thank you for the card … I now have an original Jeanne Washburn displayed in my living room! Best holiday wishes to all .. I am making a quick trip to Virginia to see the family and love on my grandsons!
