My list of things to do is checked off, so I am heading home.
On my first day I was able to link up with two friends over nice meals.
Yesterday, I walked over to the White House for a Christmas Party. The decorations were amazing, as usual. On the ground floor in the library, I saw this amusing ribbon on a tree which said that the right of citizens to VOTE shall not be abridged.
The Nativity Scene.
A nice little tree.
I am a huge fan of Sr. Diedra Byrne and the feeling is mutual. We had a great chat.
Among the nice folks were some popular and good commentators from Fox and EWTN. Nice to catch up with them. A couple of great priests from the area, whom I’ve know for quite a while. Really good men. We had a discussion about the liceity of receiving vaccinations.
It was not nearly as crowded this year, for obvious reasons. Great food, as always.
On the way out the young moon was super bright and Saturn and Jupiter are just a smidgeon apart now.
Afterwards, supper with another friend, a truly impressive guy. It was nice to have a leisurely evening with him. AG Barr was across the way. He was cordial.
A slow morning and lunch at the club before heading to the airport.
The streets of DC are relatively empty. It’s strange.
The airport is pretty much empty too. There were two people going through security and I was one of them.
