I had a hot date this past Monday
My dad had off work
And wanted to go to DC
I’m not very close with him
Over the years we’ve drifted apart
But we always find something to talk about
I keep random facts stored in my brain for such occasions
I have to admit it bugs me though
He always delves so deep into things
He always has to find a meaning behind everything
Like everything stands for something else
I can see where he’s coming from most of the time
But 99% of the time I’d rather laugh with him,
Or anyone for that matter, than contemplate life
Annoyances aside, I had a great time
The weather was wonderful and
It was nice to spend a day with Daddio
The best part of the trip?
The Hirshhorn contemporary art museum and sculpture garden
A large amount of my memories from childhood are from
Visiting art museums or galleries
Sometimes to see my dad’s work
Most of the time just for fun
So it was nice to be able to do that with him again

(A few photos from the day… )

Glad you got to spend some time with your dad.

Next time you go on a day trip to the museums, check out the Price of Freedom Exhibit at the Museum of American History. When you see that Huey helicopter from the Vietnam War, look at the painting on the side. My husband did that when that Huey landed in our yard in Georgia several years ago.

There is a long story that goes with the painting and the Huey, but I won't bore you with that.

You can see that Huey in the documentary, In the Shadow of the Blade, that airs on the Military Channel.

Enjoy your dad!
