This was a rather busy week for me. I purchased a little bit of heaven in West Virginia. My farm is all rolling hills filled with budding hardwood, fruit trees, and thousands of Christmas trees. There is a restored old cabin on the farm that dates back to the early 1800's. The cabin needs a little work, but it is quite charming. John Cooper sold me the farm. John is a 87 year old man that is still quite sharp, but is no longer able to maintain his property. John told me that selling his farm was like losing an arm. I told him that he is welcome anytime to visit for as long as he wishes. Every morning I woke up to the sounds of Blue Birds, Cardinals, Jays, Orioles and a couple of owls. The farm really puts a smile on my face. My wife Jenna said that she has not seen me this happy since we got married.
Jenna and I watched the NCAA tournament together when we had a chance. GO GEORGETOWN!!!
The only down note was putting up the March on the Pentagon gallery. I understand the reason for the protest, but it is hard seeing demonstrators and a line of riot police face off.
On up note, Springtime is here in the Big Eagle. Washington DC is just budding with flowers of all colors.
Today, I started taking photos of the Cherry Blossoms around the tidal basin. They are just budding. It looks like they will be in peak blossom in about a week.
