I am listening to: Too urban – need to listen closely to GPS


Today I took a couple of side trips – one to Morton’s BMW since I had read about it in many magazines – a very friendly dealership – got to look at a lot of bikes and accessories…and get out of the rain for a while.  Then I went down to Leonardtown, MD to visit my old friend, neighbor, and co-worker Carl and his wife Lois.  I had not seen them since the early 80’s at Wright-Patterson.  Carl went on from his Air Force career as a Flight Test Engineer to a follow-on civilian career in aircraft development projects, mostly all super hush-hush.  We had a great meal and visit as well as me getting some clothes washed – actually, mostly drying due to the rainy weather.
