Would you build a Statue of Mark Twain in Trinity Park Ft Worth TX

visit more My world to see pics from all over the earth.

I would -- If I had known they were building it I would have helped or at least brought them lunch


It sits across from the colorful playground

where my nieces played



he sits on this bench

(fittingly over looking a bend in the river)



I have spent many enjoyable hours reading this man's works, analyzing them in My English classes and watching movies made from them w/ my children. Thank you for putting your thoughts to paper Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens both of you:)



You can visit and thank him too

Your Header is beautiful! I've seen this stature of Twain at several public libraries. I like the way this particular statue is placed looking at the bend in the river.
