Before I discuss our weekend I need to discuss the Opening Ceremony.
1. I was delighted that the royal family was in attendance, but baffled by how solemn they all were. There was barely a smile in the whole bunch. (I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly say that I'm a fan of Prince Philip. I don't think he gets the recognition he deserves.)
2. Just when I thought things were getting a little too wild what with all the bad guys of British literature converging in one place, who should appear out of the sky but a MULTITUDE of Mary Poppins. Leave it to Mary to save the day once again.
3. Really. How many people know where Cote-d'ivoire is off the top of their head? Sometimes I think they make these countries up.
In keeping with our
ancient newly started tradition of visiting presidential homes, we stopped at the Washington's home on Saturday.
He did have an excellent eye for home locations because who wouldn't want a view like this from their back porch?
