A.L.E.X.A.N.D.E.R H.A.M.I.L.T.O.N....!!!


Thanks to you, 2017 has been a wonderful, entertaining history lesson.  Lilly fell in love with your words, and your hero -- and the time of the Revolutionary War became real for her.  With real people, fighting real battles, disagreeing about real issues...yet -- hey -- AMERICA SURVIVED.

So maybe that's the lesson, eh?

We can only hope...
Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

From Wikipedia:
Hamilton earned the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and was nominated for a record-setting 16 Tony Awards, of which it won 11, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book. For his performance in the lead role of Alexander Hamilton, Miranda was nominated for another Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. The Hamilton cast recording spent ten weeks atop Billboard's Top Rap Albums chart in 2015, while The Hamilton Mixtape, an album of covers of songs from the musical, developed by and featuring Miranda, reached number one on the Billboard 200 upon release in December 2016.

After an eight-month ramp up...January 3, 2018 FINALLY ARRIVED...and all the stars in the sky were aligned...even with temperatures of ten BELOW zero (without counting the wind chill factor)...


And, I think the least I can do is WRITE FIVE OR SIX BLOG POSTS about our Hamilton adventure.

So, that will be my focus for the next least...

Until I get those pictures off my 1993 digital camera -- here's a video of Lilly singing the Schuyler Sisters song during our train ride in North Freedom, Wisconsin...
