Discovering Lincoln on the Mall

Statue of Abe Lincoln on the Mall in Cleveland

While I was waiting for the bus yesterday, I had a ton of extra time, and I decided to take a spin around the part of the Mall in Cleveland near Key Tower. During my little stroll, I discovered a statue of Abe Lincoln. The bottom of the statue has the Gettysburg address on it.

I never realized the statue was there, but even more so I got a chance to re-read the Gettysburg Address. As we are coming up on Memorial Day, it has reminded me of this country's incredible history and time when we had taken up arms against each other.

I think it is the thing that is incredible about living in an older city - there is history around every corner.

K9 H2O

Dog Water Bowl with Cute Sign saying K9 H2)

On my daily stroll from the bust stop to my house, I get to walk through my neighborhood of Tremont. I spotted this little gem on my way home yesterday and thought it was so cute that I took a picture of it this morning.
