Odds and Ends

 . . . which are neither very odd nor anywhere near the end.

Timing is Everything
Every Friday night, the Aleethia Foundation sponsors a dinner for both inpatient and outpatient Wounded Warriors and their families. I have wanted to go ever since we first learned about them back at the old Walter Reed. Bob was here this week, so we thought it would be a good time to attend our first dinner. The last dinner was held at the Washington Golf and Country Club, so we our anticipation was high. However, our first Friday night dinner was held at Dave and Buster's, which is, as Seth put it, a Chuck E. Cheese for grown-ups. Not that we aren't grateful; we are. Bob was disappointed to learn that next week's dinner will be held at none other than the National Press Club.

Doing D.C.
We made it to downtown D.C. again this weekend--this time by car. It is a toss-up between fighting D.C. traffic and dealing with elevator outages on the Metro. We drove by the Jefferson, Lincoln and Washington monuments, and visited the National Gallery of Art.

This Week's Video Highlight

Bob and Seth put out the push-ups. I think they got to 35.

Random Funnies
Today at the cafeteria, I saw a dessert labeled "Black Florist Cake."

In true military fashion, elevators here are not elevators but vertical tranports.

We aren't allowed to have dogs; otherwise, we might understand the need for this sign above our toilets:
