I am on my way home from the nation’s capital. Hopefully, the last flight of the year.
Some of you wrote to ask my why I would go on a trip after getting banged up a couple weeks ago.
This is why.
Furthermore, through a contact in the aforementioned building, I was pleased to be able to give the President and Mrs. Trump a pair of matching rosaries, made by Marian, daughter of Gayle, of the finest rosaries I have every seen. HERE
They were exquisite.
Anyway, I stayed at the Army and Navy Club, near to the White House. Very handy and fascinating. They have a stunning military library. Which those are the Aubrey/Maturin books on the end of the table!
I met priest friends from the Archdiocese for the Military there for supper and we had a grand time in a grand dining room.
In one of the halls, a signed art portrayal of the company of the 101st featured in Band Of Brothers.
Meanwhile, at the White House, the decorations were great.
Alas, the lighting and my position leaning against a wall for to support my foot as long as I could didn’t get me into the best position for POTUS and FLOTUS coming down the stairway. But my view was pretty good. I opted for just a couple shots and then just took it all in. It doesn’t make sense to watch it on a screen when you are there!!
Afterword, my friend, who went with me, and I return to the club for libations.
So, I await my last flight, I hope, of the year.
