Happy Almost Birthday Tommy J

Thomas Jefferson’s birthday is coming up April 13th…

…and so maybe I’ll have to drive by Monticello and plant a few seeds along Route 53 in his honor.

Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bonds.
-Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1785

And Monticello is having a b-day party. Fife and drum corps included.
