6-25-10 Friday (Companions)

We drove to Chantilly, VA to catch a tour at the Air and Space Museum, Udvar-Hazy Center.  This is part of the Smithsonian and noted as the “companion facility to museum on the National Mall.”  It was an hour drive there.  As with all Smithsonian museums, it was free except we had to pay $15 to park.

It took an hour to get to the museum and 2 hours to get back.  Ugh.  We returned to the RV to host dinner with the rest of the gang who had just flown in this afternoon.

Steaks on the grill.  Fresh broccoli, baked potatoes.  Wine.  Mmmmmm.  And yes, I’m still on Weight Watchers, counting points, just not posting tonights.  I’m falling behind on the blogging.

DIH - JoshuaI marvel at the large selection of costume jewelry at Walmart.  3 stars have died within a week last year.  Read about it here.
