Wow, what a week it has been! I’ve got a plane to catch, but first, here’s a quick recap of my final day at Mercury Studios.

Glenn’s daughter Mary and Matt from Mercury One gave me a tour of Glenn’s collection of historical artifacts. I got to see historical weapons, a lock of hair from Thomas Jefferson, an array of old Bibles, an original script of Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio broadcast, Mary Lincoln’s funeral dress and so much more. (The rifle I’m holding in the video below is a Brown Bess U.S. Cavalry musket from the Revolutionary War.)

At the end of the day, I was able to sit down and spend a few minutes with Glenn one-on-one, letting him know how my week went. It was such a privilege learning from Glenn, his staff and everyone I met during the week.

I hope you’ve enjoyed coming along for the ride. Maybe we’ll do it again one of these days!

Let’s get to it
