Thoughtful Thursday


If I know anything,
it is to expect impermanence.

Thoughtful Thursday

There are some who can live without wild things,
and some who cannot.

Packed brain and blistered feet. . . .

But it was so worth it.

Mt. Vernon, The National Zoo, Smithsonian Castle, Air and Space Museum, Natural History Museum, American History Museum, American Indian Museum, Lincoln's Memorial, National Building Museum,
 The Holocaust Museum, The White House Tour.


Several hayseed-induced subway incidents. 

The First Dog up close and fluffy.
(Unbelievably, Bo is even cuter in "person")

Unexpected upwellings of patriotism.

Super hot and schvetty.
(high of 95)

Eh food.

Good beer.

Unbelievably awesome friends.

We came, we saw, we perspired, we slept hard.

And now.  Far from the madding crowd and dear friends, we have returned to dog slobber, cow kisses, cat kneadings,
 cooking, laundry, weed-pulling, and grass-mowing.

Good to be home.
