Where are you making the avatars you're using? I know someone mentioned it before but I want to try to make one and I can't find the post.

I've got to add this, since it's June 6, D-Day: On this date, 70 years ago, Theodore Roosevelt Jr. was the oldest man to land on Utah beach as part of the D-Day invasion. He died in France about a month later.

In accomplishments, Ted Jr outdid his Father, but did not have the flair and publicity Sr did.

Outdid Theodore Roosevelt, the youngest President in American history. I think not, no way, but won't argue the point.

I love the part in The Rise Of... where he's a young man, like 24 years old, in North Dakota, meets some travelers in the wilderness for a few days, and when they part ways the man he met tells his son, "There goes the most remarkable person I've ever met."

I an still esing he third book of the trilogy. But I read a book about r and it blew me away with all the things he did.  He just never made Pres (he was asked to run but did not). He was in a lot of stuff and was actually more of a rel soldier than his Father. (He DID make General!! and that trumps a Colonel)  )

It's free and easy to use.  Good luck!

Thanks! As far as I can tell it's an app I have to use on fb. I download the app and it's only accessible thru fb.

EmptNest yours is so fun, I see your face every time I see your avatar. 

I may go back to mine. Bad hair day or not.

Mine was also from Bitstrip. You can tweak every aspect of the look, to get it just right, and JB says it actually looked a lot like me, which is why I finally got tired of looking at it and replaced it with TR!

Honestly, I would rather look at the YOU avatar. Been reading Bully Pulpit and finally gave up on it..Doris K. G. really went to the depths of history from every angle and I can't get through it all. I am on to the new Sally Ride book now.

But I really enjoyed her Lincoln: Team of Rivals.

Has this thread been hijacked? I've lost track...

My favorite is "The rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris". It's the story of the young Roosevelt, from birth and ends with the day he becomes President. Reads more like a good story without a lot of "depths of history".

The sequel, "Theodore Rex" is just his time in the White House and what important things they did day by day. Boring compared to his amazing youth!

Oh I read it as soon as it came out. It's almost as good as The Rise Of...

The part up the Amazon was as good as anything Hollywood has ever dreamed up, and this was real!
