While visiting Thomas Edison’s winter estate, I also got to see where Henry Ford had his home. The two were close friends for the later part of their lives. In fact, they lived next door to one another while they were in Ft. Myers.

Even though I’m not a big fan of Ford Motor Company, I couldn’t help but think that Henry would be proud of the fact that Ford resisted the temptation last year to take bail out money from the government.
