I thought I might be getting in line to view President Reagan in the Capitol Building, but I found out you can't bring cameras ... also it is a closed casket. Plus, while walking through the National Mall we saw authorities roping off the viewing line ... it was 7 blocks long and at least 20 rows thick. I guess I'll be taking pictures outside.
Dave's Paper Plane
This is Dave at work in the Corcoran College Library on H St NW. Dave has been making this paper airplane for approximately two months.
I needed a snack earlier today. I gave the end of this bag of cashews to the birds.
This is my friend Andrew working in the office at Swing's Coffee Shop on 17th and G Sts NW. The company is around 80 years old, so is this typewriter. Swing's is a traditional kind of place and also an old area business. This Tower Typewriter requires no electricity, and is streamline designed leaving out the 1 key for less drag. "It isn't made with one. You have to type the lowercase "L" key for a one," Andrew told me. That typewriter is the closest thing to a computer (aside from the copy machine, stereo, telephone and cell phones, and the occasional Nintendo Game Boy) in Swing's office.
