ABC Wednesday-Letter C

 
Posted by Picasa


My husband took this photo of me over the weekend. I am sitting on a CANNON on the battlefield at Yorktown VA.

The Battle of Yorktown 1781
General George Washington's resounding defeat of Lord Cornwallis's British army;
causing the British to surrender and effectively ending the American Revolutionary War.

we had a cannon on top of a hill in wellington New Zealand - it used to tell the time to the residents in the days when people didn't all own watches

Lookin good. I love old cannons, they are so cool. I think I have a similar picture of me by a cannon in Ohio.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. You should try canoing sometime, it is a lot of fun and relaxing, although I may prefer rafting as well. Much more exciting.
