The Fam Damily went to Washington, D.C.
(pronounced "warsh-ing-ton" 'round here)
to check out the nation's capitol.
We've got pictures to prove it.
We made our way to Arlington to pay respect to my Grandfather. My Grandmother passed away this weekend and we will be returning soon to bury her with him.
Rest in Peace, Grandmom. You are missed.
Medgar Evers, civil rights activist, is only a few rows down.
A quilt was on display with tributes to many military personnel who have died while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11, so that their names will not be forgotten. Their pictures show them as children. Please take a moment to remember the name of one of Delaware's Heroes:
STEPHEN M. McGOWAN.

People getting in shape for a good cause.
The only way I could get my wife to bike with us was to attach a cup holder for her soy chai latte.
Check out the cousin's new 'do!
The Hope Diamond!
A bunch of scientists found the fossils of a giant snake. Here is a life-size model of it swallowing an alligator.
Just what everyone needs-
a scarier snake.
This photo was on display at the Crime and Punishment Museum.
He looks like he just remembered that he left the iron on at home.
What was left of the BBQ ribs at Country Hill, D.C.
A friend recommended Abita Purple Haze.
Black Flag french toast sticks finished off the week.
Henry Rollins would be proud.
See you next week.
