reading (with Abe)

Of course, when you are in the Land of Lincoln you’ve got to expect a lot of Abe-related stuff.

In addition to the giant covered wagon with book-reading Abe, there is a marker downtown commemorating the time in 1853 when our boy Abe christened the town (just named Lincoln!) with watermelon juice. (“From a cup,” according to the ever-helpful EZ Route 66 Guide for Travelers.)

And both of these things illustrate why you need to get off the damn interstate and look around in these little towns.
