My Dad is a Big Damn Hero...What about yours?

So....leaving for Washington D.C. in about seven hours. Naturally, I haven't packed yet. As much as I miss Dad all the time, I enjoy going up to D.C. to see him. It's a great town. We're going to catch a Nationals game on Friday. Maybe the National Cathedral, maybe a museum or two that I haven't seen yet in the seven years he's been stationed in D.C. My Mom and I are driving up tomorrow and driving back on Saturday. Roooad triiiip! \m/

It finally, honest to God, thunderstormed today. We really needed the rain. Hopefully, the regular summer rain pattern will set up this year and I won't have to keep worrying about my plants. It rained and then cleared before sunset. Everything was green and wet and the sun was low, casting a gold glow over everything. The busy intersection at my townhouse complex was completely devoid of cars for a full minute while I went about getting the mail from the box. It was awesome. I grinned ear to ear, it was just a great way to end a day.

So, here's to hoping your day ended well. And that I have smooth sailing on my drive tomorrow!
