Lobbying Congress

Sorry guys, no knitting right now (though I did finish a pair of socks this week). I've been in DC lobbying in Congress for basic science funding. I am now very pessimistic about the entire way our government works, but at least I'm participating in the process (or contributing to the problem, either way). Here are some fun video clips to show what I've been up to.

Here's my awesome pic of the Capitol Dome with an early cherry blossom.
Here I am waiting for a client at the Mayflower Hotel.
Just kidding. But apparently I would be worth $1,224 an hour.
All other photos are here, but it's mostly me and the guys being silly at the Mayflower Hotel, which was only a few blocks from ours. They got drinks, but I didn't. Apparently everything is overpriced there.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the wonderful pictures of the Floral Quilts. OMG. I never get tired of "admiring" them. Such skill, work, talent goes into them. Much like your knitting.

Will look and look again.

My trip to DC was great. A needlepoint seminar for a week and meeting up with an UNKNOWN pen pal and her husband that was a wonderful tour guide.

I write too much, but enjoyed it sooooo much.

You look good and the gardens are amazing. Wish I'd gone there.
