Second in an ongoing series: pointless and gratuitous quotation marks

I think the first in this series was five years ago or so, but never mind.  I eventually remembered to do another.

Oh, plus I got a haircut

Also, took the Taconic Parkway up this time

A touch longer but pretty and relaxing.  With colorful,  friendly bridges. 

Back to the Berkshires

And back over this stupid bridge again.  You know, a truck just like this knocked a young woman in her car off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge just two days ago. She lived somehow, but still...damn. And I'm not even scared of that one.  Stupid bridges.

Detroit airport

There is definitely WAY more of this airport. This is like a nanoparticle of it. 

Detroit having gone bankrupt yesterday,  we were glad to get out before they started auctioning off the seats and gates. On the plane back to Baltimore now. Our first plane's air conditioning didn't work. Consequently I now resemble a used Kleenex.

The Traverse City airport.

This is entirety of it beyond security.  I love airports like this.  Still a slight amount of Barney Fife-ism at small airports but not nearly as bad as it used to be.

Off to Travers City, via Detroit...except. ..

...this is sorta where my plane should be.  Hmmmm.

Drove home yesterday from Massachusetts flying to Michigan.  Guess I'm getting all my shows in at once to get them out of the way.  Terrible picture but a clearer one might be worse.

Also, went to a cool place called 'Rock House' yesterday

This is not the Rock House.  The Rock House is made of rock.  And took a blurry, indistinct picture.

A quote from our President. Who is now hunting down anyone who attempts to live up to it.

"My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government."

This is the little room where you get yer Buckets O' Balls

I like it cause it smells just like that old pumphouse/root cellar that Mitch and I turned into a restaurant at Mamaw Willis'. Mmmmmmm... Rooty...

Close seats...

...but not a close game.  Nats stunk it up again, getting shutout 4-0.  They are really quite disappointing this year.  However, the seats were great, free, very close (here's Bryce Harper within easy yelling distance - and yell I did after multiple f***-ups) the food was gratis, and Carol beat a young man in hand to hand combat for a foul ball that ricocheted off a railing, my and another guy's hand, and then rolled in the aisle. The other guy didn't have a chance: she has that Pilate's grip...

Quote of the Day

Comment from a article delineating the insane, draconian 'necessary security precautions' to be implemented on the Fourth of July, virtually ruining the holiday for thousands of Bostonians who can no longer enjoy their generations-long 'Independence Day' traditions, thus handing 'the terrorists' yet another in a long line of victories. 

"We're celebrating a group of rag-tag average citizens who created the greatest (until recently) nation in the world by defeating the greatest existing empire in the world by cowering behind the police in fear of two morons with pressure cookers."

Yeah. Boston Strong. Way to turn us into sheeple, authorities.  NWA had it right. 

On a smilier note, we got free behind the plate Diamond Club passes plus elite parking for today's Nats game! Free food, game, and tickets.  And seats in the a/c should we so desire. Woohoo!

Also, Moo is headed to California

Jo got a dog-friendly place to live and Moo is making the trip this week.  Had to say bye. What a nice dog.  She insists upon holding hands,  which I love. 

Radio show weekend

Delores,  Elaina,  and Jenny go over the script. Should be on by the 4th. I'm actually on quite a few things this time.  Three days until I head north.
