Thomas..
 
"Sorry"
for
"The Long Windedness"
but
"Wanted You To Know"
"The Storage History"
and
"My Efforts"
to
"Find A Solution"
prior to
"Fort Lincoln!!"
 
In that regard,
"It Came About"
in
"A Rather Strange Way!!"
 
One Night
while
"Working Late"
at
The National Archives
in
College Park
called
"A Friend In Official Washington"
concerning
"Recent Discoveries"
regarding
"The Freedom Train!!"
 
He was
"In A Meeting"
at
"The State Department"
but
"Agreed To Meet Me Later"
at
"One Of The Metro Stations"
(Don't Remember Which)
 
Unfortunately,
"His Meeting Lasted Longer Than Expected"
so
"I Waited"
and
"Waited"
and
"Waited!!"
 
:(:(
 
Finally,
"He Called"
"Said He Was Tied Up"
and
"Could We Meet Later"
since it was now
10 PM.
 
Oh Well..
 
However,
"There Was A Bright Spot"
because
"During All That Waiting"
"Passed The Time"
with
"Some Reading Material"
i.e.
"The Only Scrap"
of
"A Newspaper I Could Find!!"
 
Accordingly,
"It Wasn't Much"
so
"Read It Several Times Over!!"
 
That being the case,
"I'm Sure You Can Imagine My Surprise"
when I saw an ad for..
 
 
"A Jay Leno Book Signing!!"
 
Hmmm..
 
"Imagine That!!"
 
"Had Been Wanting To Speak With Him"
for
"Some Time"
(He's A Big Auto History Buff & Has Several Packards)
since
"I Left LA Before We Could Meet!"
 
And..
 
"Here He Was In Washington!!"
 
So..
 
"The Next Day"
 
 
"He Got To Meet Mr. Lincoln!!"
 
That being the case,
"Followed Up With An Email"
which
"Included"
 
 
"This Picture"
(What I Call The Modern Day Spirit Of The Lincoln Highway)
taken at..
 
 
The Henry B Joy Memorial
(He Was President Of Packard & The Lincoln Highway)
in..
 
 
"Wyoming!!"
 
Accordingly
since
"The Picture"
was..
 
 
"The Modern Day"
Spirit Of The Lincoln Highway
felt it was
"Important"
that..
 
 
"He Know About"
"The Original!!"
 
But then..
 
"What's This"
 
 
"Helen Smith"
and..
 
 
"U. S. J Dunbar"
were
"Both"
From
"Washington!!"
 
Hmmm..
 
Had seen the picture
"A Hundred Times"
but
"Nothing Made Sense"
until
"Now!!"
 
So..
 
"Put The Snoop to It"
and
"Turns Out"
Ulrich Stonewall Jackson Dunbar
Sculptor
of..
 
 
The Spirit Of The Lincoln Way
was buried at
"Fort Lincoln!!"
And..
 
"Then It Gets Better"
because
The Trophy
was for
 
 
"The Oddest Love Race Ever Run!!"
as
"Two Prominent Eligible Bachelors"
"Vied"
for
$5000
($100,000 In Today's Money)
and
"The Hand"
of
"Film Star"
 
 
"Margurite Gale"
in
"Marriage!!"
 
Well..
 
Needless to say,
"This Was Too Cool"
and
"Best Of All"
it had all been
"Lost To The Ages"
until
"Now!!"
 
Accordingly,
when I found out
"Jackson Was At Fort Lincoln"
"It Was After 5 pm"
but
"Made A Bee Line"
anyway
"In Hopes Of A Miracle"
that would let me
"Find His Marker!!"
 
Well..
 
 
"When I Finally Got There"
and
"Realized"
"How Big Things Were"
"My Hopes Were Dashed!!"
 
But then..
 
I noticed
"A Car"
"Still In The Lot"
and
"Rang the Buzzer!!"
 
"Kevin Answered"
and
"The Rest Is History!!"
 
"He Took Me Out"
and
"Showed Me"
 
 
"The Lincoln Oak"
and..
 
 
"Told Me The Lincoln Story"
which was
"Pretty Cool!!"
 
But..
 
"Nothing Could Have Prepared Me"
for
"What Would Happen Next"
because
"As We Turned The Corner"
to find..
 
 
"Ulrich S. J. Dunbar"
"One Couldn't Help But Notice"
there
"Guiding The Way"
was..
 
 
"The Harmon Marker!!"
 
Well..
 
I mean..
"What Can You Say!!"
 
"It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!!"
 
But then..
 
"It Does"
because
"Fort Lincoln"
is on
Bladensburg Road
which is also
"The Lincoln Highway!!"
 
So..
 
"When The Fire Truck Was Vandalized"
"My Thoughts"
"Immediately"
"Went To Fort Lincoln"
as
"The Perfect"
"Resting Place"
for
"The Sprit Of The Lincoln Way!!"
 
Talk About..
 
 
 
"The Invisible Hand"
which...
 
 
"Conducts"
"The Affairs Of Men!!!"
 
And then..
 
Get this..
 
Turns out..
 
 
Horace Peaslee
"Designer"
of..
 
 
"The Zero Milestone"
also..
 
 
"Designed"
 
 
"Fort Lincoln!!"
 
(Lincoln Highway In Red)
 
So..
 
"It Is In This Light"
and
"In The Name Of The Father"
that
"I Ask You"
to
"Look At The Big Picture"
and
"Reconsider!!"
 
"The Fire Truck"
is
"Currently"
 
 
"Here"
but
"It Would Seem"
with..
 
 
"A Little Organization"
 
 
"We Ought To Be Able"
to..
 
 
"Find"
 
 
"A Spot!!"
 
Currently
"Plans Call For"
"A 4th Inaugural Parade"
in
2013
for
The 100th Anniversary
of
The Lincoln Highway
and
The 85th Anniversary
of..
 
 
The 1928 Boy Scout Lincoln Highway Safety Tour
featuring..
 
 
"The Sprit Of  The Lincoln Way"
and..
 
 
 1929 REO Speedwagon
with
"Sons & Daughters Of The Original Scouts"
as well as
 
 
"A Living Legend"
"100 Year Old"
 
 
Eagle Scout
Bernard Queneau
aka
The Last Boy Scout
 
So..
 
"There You Have It!!"
 
"There Is More"
if
"You Wish"
but
"This Should Do For Now!!"
 
"Am Perfectly Willing"
to
"Do As You Wish"
but
"Keep In Mind"
"HIS"
"Story"
aka
"The Story"
of..
 
 
"The Spirit of the Lincoln Way"
and..
 
 
"The Long Journey Into History"
will be
"Told!!"
 
So..
 
Let Me Know..
 
Until then..
"In The Name Of The Father"
 
Warmest Regards,
