Lincoln Log

Today would have been Abraham Lincoln's 199th birthday, and though I forgot to buy him something nice I did visit the Historical Society for festivities. What constitutes "festivities" is a matter of opinion, but hey: here's a mold of Lincoln's face!

Irony #1: To celebrate Lincoln's birthday they displayed a replica of his casket. Irony #2: To celebrate Lincoln's life they held festivities on the site of another president's assassination. Irony #3: A Lincoln impersonator re-enacted the Gettysburg Address in front of people dressed as Confederate soldiers. They applauded.

I got an awesome head shot of Lincoln from the balcony!

THAT'S more realistic.

An action shot of the miniature train set. The end!

Happy Bday, Abe. This has nothing to do with Fred's post, but I just want to let the world know that Fred has a serious over-eating problem. Today, he consumed an entire box, that's eight pieces, of frozen fish.
