Consider the lilies...
Included on the agenda is a bunch of tourist stuff, and some good visiting time with Mark, who will be in town for his cousin's graduation from the Air Force Academy.
Our chaplain buddy seems to have managed to secure a couple of tickets for us to attend the ceremony, which is purported to be an impressive thing. Thunderbirds flying over and all that-- exciting stuff!
The big stir this year is that President Bush is the Commencement speaker. You know, generally I keep my politics off this blog; but it will probably not surprise you to learn that I've thought a whole lot of our Fearless Leader's actions and policies in recent years have been... problematic. However, I will behave. Not only is he is still the president, which means the nice men and women of the Secret Service will be swarming everywhere, but my baptismal mandate to "respect the dignity of every human being" still applies to Leaders of the Free World who don't seem to feel so obligated.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the day.
And there will also be some unstructured down time, as Wednesday marks 25 years since we started wandering about together. That still kind of amazes me. (did I mention the kids are not along on this trip?)
