Um…Go Wizards?

We went out to the ESPN Zone for a light dinner. This wacky DC Wizards mascot roared into the bar on a pit bike…then he hopped on the railing and wobbled his beer belly around. I’m not sure if it’s an animal or alien

We took a spin down the 270…and then I didn’t pay attention and we missed a turn off for the PA Turnpike…eventually, we made it into the down of Butler. We visited Kane – Mark’s best friend and his best man for our wedding…

It was a relaxing President’s Day Weekend. Kane and Missy were lovely hosts. Yummy home-cooked food and three adorable girls. We played Clue and Spades on our last night. I rocked that game!

A quick side note…I’m posting pix to flickr.com. We’ll see how this work’s out. Click on Kelsey’s spinning pix – if you want to see bigger pix.

Louie came along….I tried to introduce him to the girls – but they started pulling him away…and I figured Louie wasn’t ready to play with them. I’ve seen what they did to their toys. Louie’s a world traveler…and well…he’s not just any toy.

Here’s me, Louie – trying to figure out Kane’s cool TV. It’s too complicated for a simple bear like me. Too many clickers.

Remember Iwo Jima

As my photographer got some b-roll of this famous image from World War II – I snapped some pix of the memorial immortalizing the flag raising at Iwo Jima. I met a Kentucky Veteran who remembered crying when he first saw the flag raised up on the Japanese island.

As side note – the flag was hoisted up twice….someone in the chain of command thought the first flag was too small. So they got a bigger one. The second raising was photographed and that’s the one history remembers.
