I love to quilt and travel and since I retired a few years ago I wanted to do some writing about my quilting and travelling and share it with others.

Thursday on Washington
We started out today for the White House and arrived on time to see a helicopter land to pick up the President. From there we walked to the Martin Luther King Memorial. A giant statue of a giant man.
Martin Luther King
It was just a short walk to the FDR memorial. This is a very well spread out memorial with a lot of famous quotes from him along the walls. It is all out In the open air.
Lynda lined up to collect the dole.
We then took a cab back to The Old Post Office Building and took the elevator up to the tower to look out over the city. We had lunch here with a million school children. Then it was on to the Catholic University of America. We were heading for the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception . This a massive church with 2 levels of altars and chapels as well as the main church. We took the metro back to the hotel for a rest and a beer before dinner.
Tomorrow I hope to see the space shuttle.
