A WRITER'S WIT
MY JOURNEY OF STATES is a series in which I relate my sixty-year quest to visit all fifty states in the U.S. In each post I tell of my relationship to that state, whether brief or long, highlighting personal events. I include the year of each state's entry into the union and related celebrations. I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I have. This is the thirty-fifth post of fifty.
MASSACHUSETTS (2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2018)
Massachusetts was the sixth state to be admitted to the union in 1788.
