I guess many people were born in a log cabin once.

I couldn't imagine living in one of those, let alone being born in one.

I have always wanted to live in a log cabin in the woods, but unfortunately I guess that means I won't be a president :(

So was Lincoln born in a log cabin and they both got shot.

I certainly wouldn't want to live in an olden day log cabin. The newer ones though are quite nice.
