1. Faced with a day of heavy rain, we took a taxi downtown and strolled a museum for the morning. Another quick taxi ride got us to Pi Pizza for lunch- my favorite! Our deep dish pizza with artichoke hearts, minced garlic, and lots of melted cheese under the sauce was perfection.
2. The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum was the setting for our private party tonight. It was bliss to be able to tour this museum with no one but our group in it. Buffets and bars were set up throughout the museum so we could dine and drink as we toured, all to our hearts content. This was really "the bomb" as they say and I can't thank the hosting company enough for this brilliant evening.
3. Steve presented his paper at the conference without a hitch. He could finally relax tonight...and so could I. I was watching the time all afternoon thinking, "Now he's getting ready...Now he's speaking...and so on." I'm a nervous wreck for those types of things.
