These were the figures I bought, all jumbled up and thrown together, in a plastic bag, at the Meredith Community Yard Sale last month.
I wanted to display them, so I built this 3-tier riser. Yes, contrary to the widespread belief that all I can do is write, I can, if I put my mind to it, make most any kind of shelving — having 4 decades of hands on experience putting up probably a 1/4 mile worth of shelving.
It appears that I do have Grover!
Those of you who know your presidents, better than obviously does the 12-year old Devanee, probably have already worked it out.
Grover is unique and even President Obama, as I wrote about in 2009, slipped up on that one. Yes, like the notorious 3-term Benedict IX (#146, #148 & #151) Grover served 2 non-consecutive terms (#22 & #24). Though she should have spotted that, that is where Devanee slipped up. She didn’t find the 2nd Grover!
But, the 1st Grover is there, standing proud, in a nice gray long-coat suit. So, I am happy. Joys of yard sales.
