Very nice. I'm thinking of a summer trip to Springfield. It's been a long time and I've been reading a lot of books on Lincoln lately.

Beautifully said, Shady! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I'm only about an hour away from Springfield, yet I haven't been there in a long time. You picked the perfect time of year for this drive!
