Fort Stevens With My Dad

My Dad was in town recently. He grew up in DC and it's always fun for me to ride around with him. He shows me new places--old haunts for him, sometimes in bad neighborhoods now.
So, this time we cruised his old hood, his old houses and their alleys. We cruised his alma maters: Brightwood Elementary, Paul Junior High, and Coolidge. One place he showed me from his grammar school days was Fort Stevens.
After the British sailed up the Potomac in 1812 and burned the White House, a series of forts were constructed to protect the capital before the Civil War, Fort Stevens being one of them. I guess my dad used to play there with his friends back in the early 50's.
It still remains, in a sketch neighborhood at 13 and Quackenbos, complete with cannons dug into the hillside.

Check it out!

I'll take it...except how it ends

One Year

...on the job today. I outlasted the boss that hired me by 10 months! They should have a new boss in here by February.

This place is good: the people are really smart, working right downtown is great, I am looking forward to 06.

And that's on top of a great 05: a beautiful, new baby, a nice raise and bonus, good health for all my family and pets. Redskins playing well. No complaints.

I hope all my readers succeed in all that they do.

May Your Wishes Be Fulfilled in 06

Man, I hope you get yours.

...Revenge, as envisioned by Report Suspicious Activity.

Sighting: Jeffrey Brown

OK so I'm at tier 3 with this one. Satureday nite (12/17/05), I met friends at G Fine Art and I recognized this dude from the TV with his wife.
Some trippy stuff there, including a exploding thong, aka Red Streak. Look under current show. Also see Iona Brown's work--really good. (I'd link directly, but their site has that weird inability to locate.)
Bar Pilar followed.

Happy Day

Redskins spank cowgirls.

Of course, it helps when you got a guy named Cedric Killings on your defense. No wonder you can get 7 sacks.

I only wish I would run into this guy.

How to. Yumm.

AZ tells me that this is the real forbidden fruit as determined by historians and geographers. Go figure.

Sighting: Clarence Page

Saturday, 12/10/05, at the Best Buy in Tenleytown. He was with his son who was wearing a very cool Nats winter jacket. They were paying for something at the register. Mr. Page is a voice of sanity when he is on the McLaughlin Group.
