Photo: Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska, where my parents live. This was our destination, we just took the long way to get here.
Photo: I bet Mama and Papa never thought they'd find themselves in Lincoln, Nebraska, of all places.
Photo: Many of these pictures in this section are Mama & Papa's camera, so you'll see what interested them. I have many more pictures of Lincoln in my 2011 album. https://picasaweb.google.com/HuskerDuo
