Sinking slowly into the couch...

The first non-busy Sunday after the busy season always becomes an orgy of football watchery.

Somewhere in Arlington

Me getting my kicks on Rt. 66. As usual...

Washington, DC

A pianist's-eye view of the Reagan show. Note the fine performance being given by my hand.

A better pic of Jo and her young man

Matt Hazard. Danger isn't his middle name. It's his last name, actually. Handsome fella. And he seems to dote.
Jo scraped her chin up tackling one of her friends at a party the night before and was quite sheepish about her new beauty mark. :) 
My soup is beginning to smell really good...

McLean, VA

The penultimate resting place of the late Tom T. Yum...

Where's Jame?


Kate & Dad


Jo & Matt Hazard


C & T


The Too-Full Kate


Mystery solved!

Jo appears with Matt! Two free meals - his place and ours; how could we have doubted?! Additional Happy Thanksgivings!

Giant Food, 11am

While I felt sheepish at having to procure a last-minute oven bag in which to moistly roast my Tom, I was somewhat mollified to see that some are still pondering their turkey purchase.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! Love from the Northern Virginia contingent! XO

Good grief, it begins...

The Festive Assault on the Senses

McLean, VA

What's nice about a couple of days at home is I can thaw things and use Michelle's oven mitts to cook 'em. Yum!

It's a photo-finish!

West Palm Beach Airport, FL

Fighting to your gate at West Palm is like being a clown in the Elderly Rodeo...

McAlpin Fine Arts Center, Ft. Pierce, FL

Jon caught me in mid-lirty die.

The Original Tiki Bar, Ft. Pierce, FL

I had no idea Tiki Bars possessed an origin myth. Jon, of course; Mike Forrest you may remember; oh, and me, of course. Love ya, Mom.

Nat'l Airport, 7:00am

It's the Philadelphia Eagles' plane. Which probably means it's doomed to crash, if yesterday's performance was any indicator. Glad we're on a different flight. Love, Mike.

Bethesda, MD

A show at the uber-rich Beth El synagogue on Old Georgetown Rd. Yes, we're performing on the actual Bimah (altar). And our banner is masking the Torah. It made for an amusing entrance by the Arab guys. XOXO

National Harbor

Me in reflection inside the Gaylord looking at their newly-erected waterfront holiday festivity. I miss you guys...

San Diego Harbor, CA

Supposedly, this olde frigate is the first square-rigged, womb-masted, gerrymandered, ah...I can't really remember. Something pretty important and obscure, though, you can be sure. All I know is that this photo somehow implies that Shrek came over on the Mayflower and that seems more than a little implausible. Love y'all.

Looking up from the same corner we (you) were just looking down on

Recursive, or what?

Looking down on the corner of 4th & Broadway, San Diego, CA

Not me, of course. I'm looking at you. From the (supposedly) renown US Grant Hotel. XO

BWI Airport, 6am

I'm not sure if this is an exhibit or a mirror at this time of day...

Tampa International Airport

...known for its charming hangar ambience. XOXO

Hampton Inn, Venice, FL

All in all, the cachet of getting a complimentary hotel room is greatly overrated.

More from the game....

Here are a couple more pics from the game, just to show how freaking close we were!  Somewhere i here is probably Tiger Woods. He was walking around in front of us incognito all day.  Love y'all!

Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL

Greg and I saw a football game today at 'the Ship', which is what they call this stadium. It has an actual pirate ship in it which I'm standing next to the front of... Arrrrr!

G W Parkway

It's Sunday morn; the cranes still sleep,
With nary a squeak or a clank or a peep.
No grinding or shrieking to torment our brains,
Oh, how I love to see sleeping cranes!

Washington, DC

I forget how cool my job generally is. Scenes from a typical evening. Drive safe!

Fort McHenry Tunnel, Baltimore

Being birthed out if the north end of Baltimore's womb. There's a queasy notion...

Inner loop, Montgomery County

Yet another rush hour in the rain. XO!

The Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor

The dancing, colored waters at the Gaylord make me feel gay as a lord!

Alexandria, VA

At 4pm, getting on the new Wilson Bridge is pretty much the same as getting on the old one. :p (that's a smiley sticking his tongue out, by the way)

At my personal spa...

I confess that I've been getting up early every morning lately and immediately soaking my spine in water as hot as I can tolerate for about a ½ hour; it seems to do wonders. Epsom and Calgon, take me away!

Somewhere in South Central PA

Not sure where, and this is a terrible pic, but I just bought gas here at $2.05/gal! That's crazy cheap for me!

?, PA

Can you guess where I am from the pictures? If you guessed Hershey, congratulations, you haven't suffered a sub-cranial hematoma in the last few minutes. I heart you guys.

Tyson's Corner

OK, the economy IS in rut. The Best Buy parking is never this empty, especially 45 days before Christmas. It's chilly. Love you guys.

Sunday, November 9, 2008

One more time!

...and Jo for the hat trick! Going through my fridge, of course.

We all love you guys!

Same place...

Kate's face!

McLean, VA

Jame says hi! XOXOXO

McLean, VA

Sadly, no more travel means dealing with the accumulated receipts...

Reagan Building, DC

Check out the Steps being all multi-ethnical!

McLean, VA

I thought it was the 'birds' that went south for the winter, not the 'turds'....?

Kingstowne Shopping Center

Jo with Matt, her 'friend'. Hmmmm.

McLean, VA

It's been a long time since I could do this. Ran all my errands yesterday. May get to see Jo and/or Jame! They're coming up for a wedding.

Need more coffee; talk to you guys later. XO
