Did You Know

 Did you know, John Adams was a one term president and basically lost the election because he was against war with France? Who'd a thought, huh. Once out of office, he said he should have become a shoemaker.

Thanks to Denise for helping me get the word out today. AND a belated thank you to Birgit and my sister who were kind enough to post on Facebook.

  4. I am pretty certain I would rather be a cobbler than a President too. And no, I didn't know any of this.

  5. A shoemaker? Hmmm, he must have loved making shoes at one point. You are very welcome!

    1. I'm not sure he actually ever made them. He was a farmer, but he ran across one that was singing and appeared happy with his work.
