Thanks to Laurie for sending this photo.

Laurie writes, "September 7 and the Washington Nationals and Mr. Lincoln are playing around at a home game. Sure hope Mrs. Lincoln doesn't see this photo of her husband messing around with my daughter..."

I wonder if that is a photo of Lincoln.
The eyebrows look a bit to heavy, the hair color looks more brown than black, but the real questionable item is the period clothing. I thought for sure Lincoln was a Cubs fan.

Laurie, what's the provenance of this photo?
I tried to zoom in on the reflection in your daughter's sunglasses and it looks possible that she is taking the picture with her cell phone?
That would settle the issue for me.
Cool

The most suspicious item is the gloves he wears...
Neat photo, Laurie (and sure Mary would be jealous).

Gene - just in case you are being serious, you must not watch Washington Nationals ballgames. Our hometown team is known for their live caricatures of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt - live mascots who run around with weird heads on. This is the Lincoln version, and Jen and he were flirting while Jen's boyfriend was snapping the picture on his cell phone.

And a running joke from 2006-2012 and 2017 was that Teddy never won a race. I'm going to Dollar Hot Dog Night Wednesday.

Remind me again who is in first place in the National League East.

And I bet that you are going to root for the Eagles to defeat the Redskins this Sunday.....
