With today's holiday and the upcoming inauguration shipping at VO will be a little slow. There is no mail pickup today and the roads may be so jammed tomorrow that I can only hope UPS and FedEx make it. Things will be back to normal on Wednesday.
Tom and Annette (and Alec) plan on going to the inauguration. I'll be here holding down the fort with the rest of the staff. Tom's initial idea was to ride down, but bikes are prohibited. Annette is hoping the Metro (subway) is not totally jammed. I've lived around Washington DC much of my life and have never seen an event of a magnitude even approaching this inauguration. We went to lunch near DuPont Circle yesterday and the whole city is overrun with charter buses and visitors and limousines. Wow; this really is exciting!
The photo is from: http://brickstarsearch.blogspot.com/ which is worth a visit to see the other Lego Obama photos. Of course our son Alec made an Obama Lego display in September and took it down to the local campaign office, where Annette volunteered.
