49th Day - Lincoln's Legacy

What a beautiful day again with temperatures in the mid 70s with very few clouds. The I55 Route up through Springfield to Joliet was very relaxing as there was very little traffic.
The Lincoln Library and Museum were very educational. It seems to me from his Museum that Lincoln had as many opponents in his own Party as he did with the Opposing Party. It just seems unfair that the truly good people in the world only get credit after they are gone. At least the people voting for him at the time saw the good in him. He truly was one of the great President. I am not so sure he could have become President in today's times, however.
Gasoline prices in Illinois fell right in line with most other states at $2.89 per gallon. I finally had the oil changed on the Prius at St. Louis Airport so I am good to travel for another few thousand miles again.
It is off to see some Chi-Town sights tomorrow.
It's lights out for now!

  1. I concur!! Lincoln was one of the greats...we could use someone like him the very least you could believe him!!!

  2. Wow, they gave away or sold most of the furnishings. would be an eBay bonanza!
