Happy 4th of July!!

A catch up of Biter, now known as "Meat" who seems to want to live here and for 4000$ I think we earned him!! He is the one who Bit my DD but he actually is as sweet as could be!
The other picture is from our trip to Washington, DC. The Vietnam wall. If you have never been and aon go to DC, I strongly suggest it. What amazing stuff to see. We walked all over the place and my poor knees still feel it! The monuments and the sights are great. I cry as soon as my eyes lit on to the "Wall". We also went to the Holocaust museum. Words can not express how you feel.
My Dad was among the Liberation forces, he drove the General through the gate at Dachau. While he never spoke of it...ever...he did not need to. But, seeing the museum and the artifacts was very moving.
As, DD is a US History teacher, this made it even more fun. I will post a pic from the Civil War museum in Harrisburg. Another really well done museum. They had life-like models all around and it was truly amazing how real it seemed.
I have a new podcast up after a bit of an absense. I am going to focus on some books and pattens, I think and based on some knitting 'casts I have listened to, I am thinking of trying to do some interviews....any takers? I gotta fiigure out how ya' do it first!!
Happy 4th
Added note!!! Thank you to Geri for noting the podcast did not load!! Thanks also for attempting to listen...!!! Yeah!! I have re-loaded the 'cast and it is now working. If you don't see on iTunes today, it is up on podbean. I just checked iTunes and I was able to load it up so...there ya go!!
Thanks again, Geri

Happy Fourth of July to you, too. I'm glad biter or meat, whatever his name is is fitting well into the family. I have also seen the wall in DC and boy did I ever feel a strong presence there. Hard to explain!
