Going back in time to Week 13 which covers late March. During that time I flew to Washington, D.C. for a few days to attend a retirement ceremony for a very good friend, do a bit of roaming around and lastly to visit a friend near Baltimore. I packed quite a bit in just a few days so decided I wanted to do a separate layout for this week...instead of incorporating it into my regular week's layouts. Got it?
So here it is:
Here is a closer up view of the left side:
I also walked around the National Mall as the sun was setting and got some lovely photos of some of the monuments and memorials but only included a few in my layout.
And lastly...woohoo...there is a picture of my friend, Dottie, and me. She lives near Baltimore and I drove up to her home. We had a great visit, a great lunch and she gave me a tour of her area which was gorgeous...despite some icky rain!
Here is the right side with photos from my friend's retirement ceremony. I met Ken when I was 15 years old and a sophomore at Frankfurt American High School in Frankfurt, Germany. He was a very wise and wonderful senior at the time. Brilliant man. He went to Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University and went to medical school at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. I am so proud he is my friend. We have kept in touch for over 40 years...and when I learned he was retiring from over 30 years in the United States Air Force as an MD I knew that I would attend his retirement ceremony. Wouldn't have missed it!
Best wishes, Ken, in your retirement. (Although about a week later he went back to work for the government! LOL...his retirement lasted only a few days!)
And to the rest of you...Happy Crafting and Keep Creating!
