FD252 – Happy Easter..& Washington With Love

easter Bunny

 

I don’t know who the original author of this was, but I had to post it.  It is so funny.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY!

The only way to see the city is the Metro.

The only way to see the city is the Metro with your best friend of course.

Actually, that picture pretty much depicts me and my buddy Tammy.  Tammy is the one with the butt chomped off & I’m the one with the brains chopped off.  Tammy hates to sit, but we have had to sit a lot on the metro.  She likes to be on the go, I guess cause here ass hurts when she sits too much. I don’t know.  I do know I don’t have to do any thinking when I’m with her, because she’s very bossy, so I do what I’m told.  :) (Wow, that was a long run on sentence wasn’t it?)

Today will be my last day here in DC, but I’m already planning to come back.  We saw a lot of stuff.

We saw a lot of stuff.

We saw a lot of stuff.

Thank goodness I took Miguel with me.  That’s what I named his coat that he let me use.  I packed up my coats in my haste to flee Afghanistan, thinking I was going straight back to sunny Florida.  That worked out well, didn’t it? I also only packed 3 T-Shirts and 2 pair of jeans.  My new boss Tammy said I had to buy some cloths.  I’m just going to ignore her and keep wearing my clothes over again.  After all they don’t stink and I didn’t spill anything on them.  :)

Any who, the main event for yesterday was Madame Trussaus  & the Holicost Museum.  We had a ton of fun taking pictures with the wax figures.  The Holicost exhibit was sad, but a good must see if you head to Washington DC.

By  the time we got to Arlington Cemetery it was too late.  They were closed.  It was OK.  The weather was great, the sights were superb and the company was the best.  I could not have had a better tour guide.

Have food will travel. Tammy took be to some great places to eat.  Gordon Biersch was our choice for lunch.  I will say the food had potential to be great, but the service sucked and the food was cold.  OH well, There was ice cream and pizza later.  Can’t say I didn’t eat well.

So enjoy the pics for yesterday.
