New Year's Eve in DC

Charles here - Happy New Year.

Just got back from a week in D.C. with Rose, celebrating New Year's, sure, but more importantly celebrating the 26th anniversary of our first date. Buy me a drink and I'll recount that fateful weekend that set it all in motion.

While we were in D.C. we hit the bookstore at the Spy Museum where I picked up too many cool books to read. We also fought the crowds and got in to see the new American History Museum at the Smithsonian. Very impressive. Given the book I'm writing it should come as no surprise that I spent much time in the WWII area. That's not what it's called, but that's where I was. Quite an extensive display. I'll tell you this, though, if I was a Korean War vet I'd be pissed. The entire Korean War area could fit easily in my office at work. The BEST museum this trip was easily the Luce Foundation Center for American Art, part of the Smithsonian's portrait gallery.

New Year's Eve was cold and windy so after a delicious meal at The Wharf, we kept warm and reminisced about the last 26 years. Our joint resolution? To return to D.C. for the 50th anniversary as well.
