Did You Know Thursday


I'm currently reading an eight hundred plus page book on George Washington written by Ron Chernow. Because of that I foresee a lot of Washington trivia in your future:)
Did you know that Washington was a keen hunter and developed the dog breed known as the American Foxhound?

It is amazing how some books capture your mind and your imagination. Happy reading.

Janie Junebug said...

No, I didn't know that. How long do you estimate it will take you to read a book that long? Will you read other books at the same time (as I do)?

Love,
Janie

Sounds like an interesting read. I had NO idea he was a dog breeder.

Sandra said...

It is indeed. I've temporarily set George aside and am trying to get through the Mueller Report.

Sandra said...

Good question. In the past, I've tried to get a half an hr a night in then I switch to fiction. At the moment, I'm slogging through the Mueller Report in my nonfiction-time-window.

Sandra said...

He was a fascinating individual.

now the cats are going to see this and say Lincoln was "kewler" =^..^= ♥♥☺☺

Pat Hatt said...

Never knew that. A win for the dogs.

Janie Junebug said...

You are a brave woman, Sandra.

Janie Junebug said...

I suspect that many gentlemen of the time bred dogs, especially hunting dogs.

Sandra said...

I wouldn't be surprised.

Sandra said...

I was surprised too.
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra said...

Glad to hear it:)
Hugs received and returned.

The whole cherry tree thing was a lie though.

Sandra said...

It's well-written in easy to understand language, but it's looong. And lots of redactions.

Sandra said...

Now ya know;)

Sandra said...

Heh:) No doubt, they will:)

Birgit said...

You know, I did read that somewhere. Pretty cool I think.

Jeanie said...

Ron Chernow is awesome! I bet that book is fascinating.

DMS said...

I did not know that about Washington. I bet you will be finding out all kinds of information in your book. Happy reading!

Indeed:)

Sandra said...

He cut down a couple in the courtyard, but I don't think it had anything to do with the 'I cannot tell a lie' thing. Heh.

Sandra said...

Agreed:)

Sandra said...

It's filled with many tidbits I wasn't aware of.

Sandra said...

Hi Jess,
Indeed. I'm discovering many things I did not know.
