     I took time out to catch up on some correspondence._DSC3575

                             The desk I am sitting is the Resolute Desk given to President Hayes by Queen Victoria, November, 1880. You might remember this desk from the Nicholas Cage movie, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, in which he sought information he believed hidden in the desk’s secret compartments.

     My friend John also used this desk for a few years.

  1. Thanks for sharing your presidential encounters!! I hope the weather has been tolerable. Presume you’lol go through IL. Kiss the Land of Lincoln for me!! Will you have a chance to stop in Springfield to see his museum? It’s well worth the time as well as his home. Westward Ho!! Anne H.
