to Have Such Awesome Friends
We've just returned from a quick trip to Washington DC because The Teen expressed a wish to visit The Smithsonian. Having never been to DC before, I assumed The Smithsonian was two or three large buildings. Nope. Try 19 large buildings and a zoo.
We wanted to make this happen for The Teen because she has decided to undergo an unrelated donor bone marrow transplant. We're not sure when, but she's hoping to have her wish through the Make-a-Wish Foundation first.
Francis Raymond Polk, Esq. (a knight, not a lawyer) was purchased at the Eastern Market to be a friend on the upcoming medical journey, along with a killer cloche hat from a lovely Nigerian lady's stall.
