It’s the last day of June 2022 and it couldn’t get a more beautiful send-off with this gorgeous weather. It’s only 63 degrees outside but very comfortable but an anticipated 88 is expected to top off the day.
My deck’s table is set up for a day filled with research and I am currently listening to a presentation, “Lincoln’s Autocrat: The Life of Edwin Stanton.” I’ve always found Stanton to be an interesting figure, yet I’ve never scratched that much into his story.
Today, I have two different online events, an afternoon presentation from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, and an evening Zoom meeting about the White House portrait of Mary Lincoln painted by her niece, Katherine Helm.
Late last evening, I researched more on NCR founder, John Patterson and the Sherman Anti-trust Act of 1890. Quite interesting.
Chief is reclining on the deck, waiting for some dogs and their owners to pass, while Erma and The Sisters are sniffing down the grass and chasing backyard invaders, real or imagined.
There are eighteen new Mary Lincoln day lilies in the front yard’s raised flower bed.
On with the day! Make it a great day!
