Happy Labor Day!


A tip of our straw garden hat to Jean Hall, who was the first person to answer our last quiz correctly! (And we admit, some of those questions were tough.)

The answers were:

1. Johnny Appleseed; 2. Samwise Gamgee, from The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkein; 3. Thomas Jefferson; and 4. Michelle Obama. The bonus answers are Mary Lennox and Ben Weatherstaff, from The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
