    No Wikipedia nor Google at the time. How’d she find that story?

    Yes, it could have happened. According to the Wikipedia article on Thomas Lincoln (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Lincoln – for what it’s worth), “there seemed to be a struggle between Abraham’s yearning for knowledge and Thomas’ lack of understanding about the importance of study to Abraham’s life.”

    I guess that is another story that will go down in the dustbins of history.

    PP, you can always fall back on the classic: “Chuck’s beagle ate my homework.”

    How can you do homework on the back of a coal shovel?

    Next time, Patty, rephrase the statement into something hypothetical… your teacher might be impressed.

    Patty, american history is coloured by enough fantasies about the founding fathers. Don’t add more.

    I sometimes wonder if these stories we are taught as kids really happened, or were just made up. I also wonder how many real stories were never retold.

    Who do you think is smarter in school? PP or Sally?

    If Thomas Lincoln hadn’t made his son erase the report, Peppermint Patty would have had proof.

    Well, there is a chance. Maybe Patty is right. The teacher wasn’t there so, how does she know?

    The remarkable thing is that, with perhaps a year of school in all, Lincoln not only learned the language but proved able to use it more powerfully and poetically than any other chief executive in the republic’s history.

    I doubt that Abe’s family had a coal shovel. They likely burned wood in their fireplace.

    Peppermint Patty has finally discovered something she’s good at in school: creative writing.

    Or maybe she took this from one of Snoopy’s “It was a dark and stormy night” stories.

    At least she didn’t claim he killed vampires.

    I REALLY hated when that movie came out. There were folks who actually believed it was true and were asking for more sources on his vampire hunting. It was difficult to impossible to get them to understand that both the book and the movie it was based on were works of fiction.

    I’m starting to think Pp is related to Calvin. Hobbes can be embarrassed for both of them.

    In PP’s world it is an active imagination.

    The wooden shovel was in lots of kid’s books about Lincoln when I was a child. How he would write on it, then shave off the writing. When his Dad complained that the shovel was too thin, Abe would chop a tree down and carve another shovel.

    According to him, the shovel was for practicing. If something struck his fancy enough, he’d write it out on the shovel. If it was still good enough, he’d re-write it in a more permanent form.

    This is the same guy that when he ran out of books to read, convinced somebody to let him read The Revised Statutes of Indiana. And no, it didn’t include the Indiana attempt to create a law making pi equal to something other than 3.14159… since that wasn’t until 1897.
