YAY for Abe (and grouchy George)

Abraham Lincoln was apparently a great guy. He is reported to have had a great sense of humor. He told jokes and funny stories. He liked kids, even when they sent his stovepipe hat flying and his important papers blew all over the place. And he was, arguably, the first freedom fighter.

George Washington is apparently largely misunderstood. In his pictures (paintings, since the camera had not been invented), he always looks grumpy at best. From what I understand, he was in a LOT of pain - first with his rotting teeth and then with his painful dentures that were made of ivory (NOT wood). His mouth hurt and that's why he looks like that.

Thanks to those two (and the fact that school will be closed for our Presidents' Day holiday to honor them), this will be me on Monday:

I was going to say that THIS will be me, but then I thought it looked like she was going to Heaven and I didn't want to give the wrong impression. Not that I don't want to go to Heaven. Just not on Monday.
