Who Was Mr. McGregor Anyway?

Peter Rabbit Soundtrack

While planning for our upcoming trip to England and Scotland, Mr. B and I came across information about Beatrix Potter's home in England's Lake District. She was the author and illustrator of several children's books including The Tale of Peter Rabbit and she purchased several farmlands to save them from being developed. They are now in the care of The National Trust.

Since one of our lodgings is in Ambleside on Lake Windermere, we decided........(well I decided.....and Mr. B is gracious enough to come along) to visit Hilltop farm & museum nearby!

Now the funny part is that I was cleaning out my office the other day and came across this newspaper article from 1956.

Yes!  Mr. B was Mr. McGregor in his kindergarten operetta!!! 

Even though he doesn't look anything like the "real" Mr. McGregor, I am sure he did an amazing job!
