you know what? I would really love a teddy bear onesie with the hood that has little ears. I would wear that thing around the house in the winter and OWN IT.

     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”

Thats mildly hilarious

When my mom was a kid, she had a wolf dog named King. A woman had just moved from Alaska into my mom’s Seattle neighborhood and was giving away puppies in a hurry. When my mom picked him out, the woman told my grandma, “if anyone asks, you tell them it’s a husky.” A logger from Alaska lived in the neighborhood also and whenever my mom or my grandpa would walk by with the wolf, he’d joke around, “what kind of dog is that? hehehehe. I was a logger, I know what kind of dog that is.” My mom didn’t realize he was a wolf at that time. He used to protect her fiercely, he slept in her bed, and growled, baring his teeth at anyone who tried to hurt her. He was the best childhood memory my mom has.

So I went on an adventure today to Beacon Hill, which of course meant one thing: CHARLES SUMNER.

Ladies and gentleman, I give you the house he spent most of his life in. Oh yes.

Charles Sumner’s voice, however, was a deep base baritone. Imagine him and Lincoln having a conversation…

If you overhear their conversation from another room, it’ll sound like a broad giant arguing with a little weezy, mousy kid about politics. And then you go to where they are only to see two tall men of the exact same height…

I AM DYING. OH MY GOSH.

Psst, I have some family diaries that date back to the Civil War. Apparently President Lincoln apparently had a wheezy, grandfather like voice.

I’ve talked to so many people who think Lincoln had this booming deep voice. His voice was once compared to a whistling tea kettle. You’d think he would have the deep baritone but NOPE lol

Today I worked from 9am to 10pm cleaning the house in preparation for the arrival of the family.

I am sore. I fell off a chair while putting curtains on and bruised my stomach and hip lol I started laughing hysterically afterwards because as I was falling the way I was balanced on the chair’s back made me look like I was flying before I landed on my feet. It was an oddly graceful fall. It hurt like the dickens, but I looked good going down lol

But, in other news, tomorrow, we will finally have gutters… thank goodness.

Welp, I’ve gotta get up at 6AM, I’ll talk to you all later :)

If I wanted to learn ALL THE THINGS about Charles Sumner, what would you recommend for reading material?

megcubed:

It treats him horrifically and makes him out to be a dick, but Charles Sumner and the Coming of the Civil War and Charles Sumner and the Rights of Man by David Donald is a pretty good start. You get his whole life, from a bit of a southern supporter perspective, but his life all the same.

Young Charles Sumner by Anne-Marie Taylor is AMAZING, but it only covers up to him becoming a Senator.

If you go onto google books, there are a bunch of short bios about him written in the 1800s which are worth checking out.

His letters/diaries and Longfellow’s letters/diaries. Those two were as close as can be, and their letters really show a wonderful side to Sumner.

Random Memories by Ernest Longfellow has some hilarious stories about him.

I have a few article links too, which I’d gladly send to you. There is also this:

http://www.nps.gov/long/historyculture/charles-sumner.htm

If I think of more I’ll add to the list. lizzywhimsy, any other suggestions?

You pretty much covered it. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of biographies about him. We make do with what we have. 

I have heard that the book Team of Rivals discusses him a bit.

I found one of the little mice today. It got trapped in a plastic bin which was in our laundry room. It was so precious and adorable. It was tiny and it’s body was like 60% head. It’s eyes were so huge. I let it go about 200 ft. away from the house into a corn field. I snapped a few pictures of it but I’ll have to post those later.
