Beautiful Art & Architecture In Our Nations Capitol October 27, 2011
Bob, Mr. Wonderful and I “won” a 2-night stay in Washington D.C., at a recent fundraiser and enjoyed lunch with our Congressman, Dan Lungren, in the Member’s dining room today. Lunch was followed by a stellar tour of the Capitol and Congressional Library. In fact, we were able to climb the steps within the congressional library’s rotunda and step outside to enjoy some once-in-a-lifetime views of the town.
I think our forefathers did a pretty amazing job of selecting timeless finishes, and commissioned talented artists, to withstand the last 200 years and still look fabulously grand!
We had some time to kill before our lunch appointment and I got a chance to pretend to say a few important words at a podium in a room looking out toward the Capitol!
There’s gorgeous wood paneling everywhere and a quarry or two of marble! Mr. Wonderful thought it was a but strange that I’d take a photo of the bathroom, but there are lots of marble lovers amongst us! I’m in good company!
While the Senate and Congress recessed early today, we were able to step into the gallery and see where all the
gridlock decisions for our government take place.
Now, back at the Hotel, we’re tucked into our bed, while Bob watches the World Series with his eyes closed, getting ready for another big day tomorrow.
Continued blessings and good cheer!
