Team Steinkellner Gets Into the Cradle of Independence for Free. (If You Don’t Count Air Fare)

6 Jun

We see the room where the Declaration of Independence was born. A simple room with such grand results. The Federal Tour Guide with a brutal Philly accent is a real tough guy. I loved him He should be on Law and Order rather than those Hollywood pretty boys.

On the walk to the Philadelphia Mint Emma takes a header but recovers after a few minutes. I would have needed smelling salts and a full body cast. Most definitely, I would be in wheel chair for the rest of the trip. A guy can dream can’t he?

Lots of fun at the Mint. See billions of pennies in huge vats. You remember pennies. Everyone spends all day trying to get rid of them, refuse to pick up a stray one so the government in its wisdom can make six billion more to go add to the ones people are trying to ditch. Crazy.

Still it is the one place in America that we still make something. If they ever outsource that to India we are in deep crap.

Lunch was at the rehabbed house from colonial times. Chicken and mashed taters. The apple cobbler (used to hide the fruit that was going bad in the old days) was too sweet. I scraped off most of it and ate the apples. Lunch here will be the happiest part of the day. The second it is over it is time to slog a million more hours on the bus.
