Marilyn has always been a big fan of the tall ships. When a TV show of them sailing into Boston Harbor appears on TV, she sits down to watch. She loves them. Her birthday was a couple of days ago and I got her this replica of the USS Constitution. Old Ironsides.
This replica is just over 3 feet long and about 2 1/2 feet high. There is a great deal written about this ship on the internet including an official US Navy Website for her. This wikipedia site tells a good deal of her history.
I ordered it about a month ago, and last week, Marilyn's ship finally came in. It didn't come by UPS. It was 'shipped'.
