FF55 7/13/12 News Flash

A Sighting!  Lincoln's alter ego-or his ghost?
Seen somewhere between
the sunset and the light...I swear
he spent only a few thin,shadowy moments
at the Memorial in DC, rubbing his chin
" Did they need to sculpt me so large?"
They got most of the details right-
" Where in town is a good library?"

I was just there in DC and he is HUGE! You know... I just read "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter ... the man might ... not ... be ... dead! :) (excellent fun read, btw)

...I saw the movie. I WISH they would have cut 10 minutes of action out and put in scenes from the book - it was such a fun read, very moving - especially Abe's younger years which the movie doesn't touch upon. I think more character development was needed... but that is coming from a woman. They men, I'm sure, would want more action. :) I give it a "B" only because I read the book and wanted THAT story on the screen (interestingly, the man who wrote the book wrote the screen play -- go figure)

Favorite line:
"Did they need to sculpt me so large?"

I can imagine him wondering that. :)

Thanks for doing Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Cad said...

Well, isn't size supposed to matter? :)

Love this. I know he'll find the library.

I'm sure Lincoln would say something very like that--he was a very self-effacing man for someone who did so much. Great historical 55.And now I have to find that book Margaret mentioned!

I thought he was busy killing vampires? (LOL!) Fun 55!
