No Towering Inferno part 2 last night with some of WDCís finest on watch.

If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it.  The felon does not fear the police, judge, nor jury.  The felon must be taught to fear his victim.

Fell asleep around midnight, alarm began ringing at 4am, I hit the snooze twice.

We finally got en route at 5:30, 30 behind schedule.

We still made good time to Lewes, Delaware and are now sailing in the Atlantic Ocean to Cape May, New Jersey

8:57 am, ferry bar is closed.

No problem, itís why we always carry a large cooler in my suv, full of beer, pop, water, beer, vodka, whiskey, bourbon, and beer!

Thanks BigEd

Yes, I traded in my iPhone 6s for a new iPhone XR.

Still need to learn how to resize so pics fit nicely on a smartphone sized screen.

I was just Google-Earthing'ing that area last week, just out of curiosity.  :biggrin:

Everything is so clean and orderly....something we're sadly not used to anymore.

I was just about to post exactly the same. Soooo wish our country was clean. If I ever leave I think that would be in the top reasons why.

The man in the pic is a good friend of mine, Eric.  Ericís son Russell just graduated boot camp so instead of flying out, we decided to road trip.


Nice, battery life is better than any previous phone Iíve owned by a mile.  I can go 1.5-2 days on a full charge.

The XS has dual cameras that offers better pics, though not the battery life of XR.

I made it home from the road trip finally.

We made it to Ericís yesterday afternoon and began celebrating with Russell the recent graduate.

Now, I need to recuperate for awhile before I tell you about the rest of our road trip.

We had the night of our lives in. Baltimore, Maryland.
