Mark Twain Again

When you can't think of anything else to show on a Hartford blog, show something about Mark Twain.

The Mark Twain House is one of Hartford's most visited tourist attactions.  I have previously shown a bust of Twain and photos of his impressive Hartford house.

For other photos with a lot or a little red, go see Ruby Tuesday.

What an author. Always liked his work. Surprised he wrote it all out in longhand with a pen.

Terrific portrait...both yours and the formal painting! We who live on the Mississippi also claim Mark Twain as "one of our guys!" PS. After today, come visit me on my Mazatlán, México blog!!

Growing up across the Mississippi from Hannibal Missouri, I was exposed to Mark Twain from early childhood. Some day I'll have to tour his Hartford home. I've been to the Hannibal home a few times.

Mark Twain is one of my favorite American characters.


A RED-LESS DAY?

Don’t you think it’s very clear
That a red-less day’s a drag?”

When my brother was up there a few weeks ago, this is the place he visited and he loved it.

Samuel Clemens was a true American hero, flawed but one who understood the difference between truth and piety.

Nice shot, Jacko!

I'm ok with some extra Twain. He's one of the good ones!

Great shot - nice with that red wall. Thanks for the link back to his house - it is utterly fantastic!! Would love to see it in real life.

Wonderful photo, Jack. Thanks for sharing! About my Tuesday post, I'm waiting for a light rail train. No bus goes on that particular street.
