little review

Poem for Sunday

The Yankees. I hate them. All through college I actually hated the Mets more, because we were in Philadelphia and I had roommates who were Mets fans, who would go with me to Phillies games and root against them, who were absolutely insufferable when the Mets beat the Red Sox in that infamous mid-80s series, and I swore that if it ever came to it I would root for the Yankees over the Mets or the even more intolerable Braves. But now I have to take that back. &$%@# Yankees.

It ended up not being such a bad day...once the articles were posted and Hebrew school and soccer were finished, we went to Georgetown for the afternoon. Unfortunately we did not make it to the funky stores along M Street or lower Wisconsin because my older son got a stomachache...don't worry, he miraculously revived by the time we went to my parents for dessert with their old friends, which turned out to be nicer than I expected, mostly because the kids were in good moods and I did not have to sit there trying to smile graciously while kicking them in the shins under the table because my father has meltdowns when my kids act like kids in front of his friends without grandchildren of similar ages who are used to kids acting like kids. Anyway, our first stop was the one of most relevance to this journal, so I will let the photos speak for themselves.

If the weather holds, there will be more canal pictures soon, as the plan is to pick older son up after Hebrew school, go apple picking and see the Seneca Creek Aqueduct.
