Decided to go to the National Museum of American History. Looks like rain. By the way, Bus shelter 52 lady is still there talking to herself.
Spent the whole day at this museum. Very very good. These US *******s have packed a lot in in their time. Quite aggressive as they seem to have fought at 16 wars since independence. Very very busy in the museum.

We also spotted some people driving around the grounds in golf carts. So of course Dan and I had to hire one while the ...
Last night we had dinner with our friends Paula and Linda. For years, the 4th of July meant a visit from Paula and Linda and hours on the lake, floating around, waterskiing, drinking Margaritas and dancin' the night away. Our busy lives and the many miles between us have caused us to miss the last few 4th of July celebrations. Nice that our journey took us close enough to DC to spend the 4th of July evening with our ...
