Hoofing it in DC

I had to do an errand in DC today and I decided to see some of the sights:

 Well-groomed trees at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

 Very quiet men playing chess.

 Bus-loads of kids entering the National Gallery of Art.
Notice the Roy Lichtenstein poster.

 "Shock of the News" exhibit shows creative ways that newspapers have been used in art. Picasso was the first to use newspapers as collage... 1912, I think.

This is the entrance to an amazing exhibit!

 A walk through Chinatown.

 Colorful foliage on French Street.

A giant hand in front of the Historical Society of Washington, DC

And this is the African American Civil War Memorial.

Thanks for taking a look! Marty

Good news from Kathy!

I'm happy to report that my sister Kathy did some fall cleaning and came across one of her designs that she started stitching but never finished. I'm entering it into the computer now since there's no trace of the electronic version. It should be ready later this fall .... Stay tuned! The verse on it is also a refrain from a camp song that my girls sing. It's been stuck in my head since I started this project!
