Busy Weekend

Last night I decided to start using my season tickets to the Nationals. Like usual, I watched them lose a game. This one was to our neighbors to the north, the equally lousy Orioles.

Then today, I took a leisurely walk in Arlington National Cemetery to watch our wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We had setup this event for our alumni chapter here several months ago.

Tomorrow I'm going to Crystal's graduation party in Clarendon. She's a lawyer now, so if we don't go, she'll probably sue us or order an injunction. I don't even know what that means, but she'll do it.

As expected, walking on the ankle is painful. But it's worth it to be mobile and out with friends again.

Here's a picture of the glorious wreath Binoy and I picked out last weekend. The ribbon says, "The University of Tulsa." We asked for blue and gold flowers. We were told there was no such thing as a gold flower. So we went with yellow.

Our honored guest was former United States Congressman Brad Carson, a TU alum. To his right is Troy. Binoy and Laura are in the back.

They put the wreath at the end of the path where the guard walks.

Then they bring the wreath up the the tomb and finish up the ceremony.

  1. Your Mom and I are glad to see out and about. Watching two crappy teams play baseball might be more painful then your ankle. I'm hoping the pain in your ankle will diminish over time.
    That was a very special thing you and your friends did at Arlington. Love Dad
