This afternoon the Imps and I decided to visit a local museum, having spent the bulk of Spring Break reading, crafting, and relaxing. We wandered through many fascinating displays and pieces of history. But, what amazed me was an item tucked in the corner of the basement part of the building, a lone piece of furniture…it is the desk of Gen. Alexander Macomb and he used it while stationed in New York during the War of 1812! Who would imagine that in a very small, locally run and operated museum in Billings, Montana there would be a desk from the War of 1812. It was amazing and being the rule breakers we are, the Imps and I all touched it reverently and even peeked inside.
