** Part 2 is dedicated to my friend Lauren too. Oooh, girl - we missed you today!
I didn't learn as much as I could have about Helen Keller at the festival today since my friend Shital and I chose to do the self-guided house tour and go at our own pace. It was nice, and once the small crowd left each room, I took the photos that I wanted. Shital was great too and took lots of pictures when I asked. I thought it was funny that a guy working at the main gate offered to zoom us up to the front door in a golf cart. The driveway was not very long. Such kind service!
Behind everything was a small gift shop and had many small items for
sale, including green aloe soap bars in the shape of Alabama. I almost
bought a set of cards and envelopes that had a drawing of Helen and
Annie Sullivan for five dollars, but I have so many other little cards
in my scrapbook shelf already, and I promised I wouldn't buy any more.
But I would have bought some of those cool stamps if they had the correct (up to date) postage amount.
