Recent Trip to D.C.
On a recent trip to DC with the family, Ann and Georgette, we encountered Uncle Sam and Rich Uncle Pennybags, the mascot of Monopoly. We happened to be in front at the US Capitol where there was a small photo shoot occurring. While respecting the photographer in charge I just took one snap for a record of the event for our trip. The highlight of our trip was going to Ford's Theatre. Without even realizing it, we were there April 14th, the day Lincoln was shot. The tour was sold out by the time we arrived, but standing there thinking 144 years ago that night, Abraham Lincoln was shot here. What a coincidence!
