Poem for Monday

Collapse )

Still in Hanover, going home late afternoon. Here is a picture of the sunset, which apparently was spectacular even by local standards as there was a picture of it in the local paper. Will post Boyds Bears and more Maximus (there's a comparison shot from Gladiator in the comments from the earlier entry if anyone doesn't believe me about the name) when I get home!



Happy Presidents' Day if you are celebrating it. Otherwise happy Monday. I don't need to repost that Marriage Is Love meme one more time for anyone to need to know where I stand on that issue, do I? I've written my letters to my representatives many times...

The Public Photos

We're home. Easy drive through PA and MD, still a lot of snow on the fields. Am on page 378 of Post Captain and would be very, very upset at the state of Jack and Stephen's relationship if I did not know that there were 18 more books, which I am taking as a sign that all ends well. *g*

Here are a few more trip pictures. We had chocolate fondue last night for my father in law's birthday, which was very good and extremely messy. It was another clear cold day and the kids spent the morning helping Grandpa set up his model trains in the half of the garage specifically alloted for that purpose. We never hiked at the battlefields but I did listen to Mary Fahl's "Going Home" from Gods and Generals as we drove by them -- does that count as celebrating Lincoln's birthday?

Empire Online has a pic of Paul Bettany on the red carpet at the BAFTAs. Third row, second picture. (There are also pics of Peter Jackson, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, et al.)



And GIP, above, because bronzelionel is evil a lovely person.
