Dear Friends,

Now for the second...

Oh but wait,
we haven't been to...

The Olympic Room.

Here they have
The Cauldron Torches...

from 1996 in Atlanta...

and 2002 from Salt Lake City,

But how did that happen??

Both years,
The Union Pacific
carried the...

Olympic Flame

across the Nation
as part of...

The Olympic Torch Relay.

Sorry it's not sharper,
but it was coooold.

Which would explain...

this one at
Olympic Stadium
as well.

You get the idea.

And speaking of
Olympic Torches...

they have one from both
the 1996 and 2002 Games.

But if you really want to see...

Olympic Torches...
you should stop by
my buddy's place
in Salt Lake City.

He has one of the
largest collections
in the World.

This was the start of it
back in 2002.

Think he has
well over 25 by now.

Pretty Cool!!

As you leave the Olympic Room...

over the mantle is this...

TO
THE MEMORY OF
ABRAHAM LINCOLN
WHO ON AUGUST 19, 1859
WAS THE GUEST OF
HON. WILLIAM H.M. PUSEY
WHOSE RESIDENCE
STOOD ON THIS GROUND.

Warmest Regards,
