The historical event I would have liked to have witnessed is the maiden voyage of the Titanic....just the first leg!! I first thought it would be fun to be in the shoes of Mrs. John Jacob Astor...then decided her entourage would not be "my kind of people"; so, wanting to be First Class and yet not with the snob set, I picked the Unsinkable Molly Brown...
|Mrs. Margaret Tobin Brown|
I would like to trade places with her for 24 hours....the 24 hours BEFORE the Titanic struck the iceberg!! I would love to see what the Titanic looked like/felt like...I am going to spend my entire 24 hours roaming all over the ship to get a real feel for the entire scene! And for those who really like to read...I have included the entire article which came up when I googled Molly...whoops, I mean Margaret (another connection..there are a lot of Margarets in my family including my oldest daughter!).
"After being brined, salted, and pickled in mid ocean I am now high and dry... I have had flowers, letters, telegrams-people until I am befuddled. They are petitioning Congress to give me a medal... If I must call a specialist to examine my head it is due to the title of Heroine of the Titanic."
"Thanks for the kind thoughts. Water was fine and swimming good. Neptune was exceedingly kind to me and I am now high and dry."
