465. Competent

465. Competent
Definition: (adj) efficient and capable
Location Placed: Marble House Mansion, Newport, Rhode Island
Date Placed: 8/2/12 at 1:21pm

The third house on our mansion tour was certainly up to snuff with the others. Listening to the stories on the audio tour of people that had been in these mansions, had grown up around these mansions, had been to lavish parties in these mansions had tons of interesting tidbits. Stories of children (and occasional adults) riding down grand staircases on serving trays. Tales of children sneaking food and running through halls late at night. Accounts of costumes at themed parties. I can't even imagine spending time in places like these, let alone spending whole summers in them!
