A friend put this picture on my desk this morning.
I realize that it could get me in trouble but I could not resist sharing it.
At least Teddy Roosevelt is in the picture and he was in office from September 14, 1901 – March 4, 1909. He died in January of 1919 about 6 months before my T was born.
So that may make this T related!
The painting is one by Carthage, MO, artist Andy Thomas. He did two versions of this: one with Republican presidents and another with Democrats. Andy's website is: http://andythomas.com/

I would chum with Kennedy and Roosevelt before I would talk to the other group.
I love the body language of LBJ leaning over the college professor in schmoozing mode.
Holding hands is a nice touch;
They're still keeping Iraq from selling much oil.
Oil was $28/bbl in 2000. It reached a peak of $160 in 2008.
