Weekend before last my husband and I went to the annual fall festival at Cyrus Hall McCormick’s farm and homeplace out in Steeles Tavern, VA. There was so much RED there I couldn’t believe my eyes. All the equipment was painted a bright, pristine red...absolutely breathtaking! If you need me to jog your memory, Mr. McCormick invented the “reaper” which revolutionized farming in America. Before his reaper, our country depended upon manual labor to cut down the fields of grains. To learn more about his invention, go to this Wikipedia entry. Another interesting fact is Mr. McCormick and Abraham Lincoln were both born a few days apart...Lincoln on February 14, 1809, and McCormick on February 15, 1809.
I am linking up with the Rednesdsay meme sponsored by Sue over at It’s A Very Cherry World. Please be sure to stop by and see all of the neat red things those of us who love RED have posted. I continue to be more and more amazed each week at all the RED!
