Happy Belated Birthday, Mr. Lincoln

"If this is tea, please bring me some coffee. If this is coffee, please bring me some tea."
                                                        -Abraham Lincoln 

I would have wished him happy birthday sooner, but Americans don't really like celebrating things on the day they happened. Why ruin a perfectly good chance at a long weekend? Besides, it took awhile for me to track down the coffee quote. 

Photo by me, because I figure you've all seen enough pictures of Lincoln for one month. Why Hemingway? I say: why not Hemingway? That coffee came from the shadows of Kilimanjaro after all...
