Today’s Top 5


My hometown! We still have the Apple Blossom Festival every year. That is the George Washington Hotel in the background. That is where my mother and father met.

Facial Expressions? Priceless!!

Some of them could be saying..."What am I doing here?", some seem to be enjoying it,however, they all have a look on their faces that they'd rather be somewhere else than here. (and not one "Adam's Apple" showing in the bunch!)

Two time travelers

Drew Barrymore and the girl immediately to her left (our right) who can't believe she's standing next to a Hollywood star. Numbers 7 and 8 from the left.

Apple bevy

I'll take a wild stab here; as both George and Martha Washington have significant Virginia histories, and George one specific to Winchester, I'm going to guess they're made up in Martha Washington garb, including what look like gray wigs. There's also a GW legend about apple trees - not as famous as the cherry tree one, but still.

Another shot from the series shows some of them in the same dresses but different hair.

"Bevy of Beauties"

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder... Those ARE actual women, aren't they? Not a bunch of homely looking guys in drag?
