collies 7-Are you serious dad? That really happened? Wow!  Hey everyone, Lad here and dad just told me a story that I can’t even believe…… Let me tell it to you.  There was this young man named Robert who achieved fame, fortune and power having been President of several companies, big companies, served in the US Government and was famous not only for himself but his father who was President of the United States.


Here is what is ironic about this man. He was present at the White House when his father was shot and at his side when he died.  He later was present and witnessed the Assassination of his boos  President Garfield and was present when President McKinley was shot.  But, here is the real irony of this story and its creepy.

-In 1863 or 1864 Robert almost fell on the ice under a train which would’ve probably killed him on the spot. However, some one grabbed his hand and pulled him to safety just in the nick of time!!!!   The man who pulled him to safety was the actor Edwin Booth.  What is so creepy about that?  Well, Edwin’s brother was John Wilkes Booth who Assassinated President Abraham Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln was the father of Robert… Robert Lincoln.   So, how is that for irony?  I just can’t believe it…. hmmmm…. ball, ball, ball?
