|Me guess where? (and it's not Grant's Tomb)|
Yep, that's me with the well known giant phallic symbol of Washington D.C. known as the Washington Monument. I asked my friend Bob C. to take my picture to "prove" I was there today. You know how it is with us tourists, we gotta have that picture for the grandchildren to tell them "I was there.!" But hey, I don't have any grandchildren. In fact, I don't have any children. Oh well, I'll post it here on my blog for my blogger friends (that's you!) to show you all where I was today.
|Boarding the bus this morning at Delaware Tech in Georgetown|
My friend Bob C. and I left early this morning on the Adult Plus bus from the Georgetown campus of Sussex Tech. They almost called the trip off until I called yesterday to confirm the trip. When I told them I had a friend who wanted to also attend, they said he "tipped the balance." Hey, that's the first time that's happened. Nice to know one has an impact.
|"The Castle" at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.|
This trip was to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. The last time I visited the Smithsonian was the first summer Bill and I were together. That would be in 1965. Wow, a lot has changed since then. I wish Bill was with us. He preferred to stay at home. He doesn't like these senior citizen bus trips. Me? I don't care. The bus was big, comfortable and air conditioned and someone else was driving. I love it!

We saw a lot today including Julia Child's original kitchen from her PBS show. It was all so interesting. I love this kind of stuff.

Something else that made me feel good today. Even thought there were a lot more security measures, it did my heart good to see so many of my fellow American citizens and, no doubt, a few foreigners also roaming around "America's Museum' today learning about the history of our country and mankind. One day is not enough.
