Lucky gardenwriter/blogger Mary Ann Newcomer – aka the Idaho Gardener – must be doing something
right, to get 4 tickets to the swearing in ceremony. Blue tickets, even. (Whatever that means – no doubt better than some other color.) So she and her pilot husband hop on a plane for free and next thing I know they're partying with their friends at the Old Ebbitt Grill, where I joined them – an awesome meet-up location. Fun was had.
Now that I've gotten in the obligatory gardening hook, can I just show some fun photos I took in D.C. yesterday?
Vendors are everywhere, with prices all over the damn place. I stocked up on pins, a hat and two t-shirts, one artsy and one gawdy and fun.
And here's the structure we'll all be seeing in a few hours – the viewing stand in front of the White House where the Obamas will be watching the parade. Directly across from it is a 3-story press structure that's the largest I've ever seen for this event. We weren't allowed any closer.Susan Harris on January 20, 2009 at 7:30 am, in the category What's Happening.
