Apparently I saw horribly tortured puns. But I saw some other things, too.
This is a photo I took of myself after playing tennis with Lloyd. Although I feel like I'm very good at dealing with extreme heat, I have lost the ability to combat humidity. And it was quite humid even though it wasn't all that hot. Additionally, the AC in Karl and Lloyd's apartment broke toward the end of the visit. Thankfully, a thunderstorm made the last night much cooler. Lloyd and I actually sat outside on the deck and watched television through the window in order to stay cool. Laziness and trying to be comfortable: the mother of invention.
This photo is a cautionary tale about the dangers of sandals. Kat always bothers me about not wearing sandals regardless of the weather. I wear shoes because I am afraid that if someone in front of me for some reason doesn't continue walking forward, I will snap off a toenail.
Note: The person who didn't walk forward in this particular instance was me. If I had not been wearing shoes and had instead been wearing sandals, Lloyd probably would still have a full left big toenail.
This is not a very good photo by me, however, Lloyd and I accidentally got in trouble for using flash photography at the Clinton Library, so obviously no flash was used here. While it is good to see Lloyd, this photo is more about the Arkansas skyline. We had a good time downtown at the concerts during Riverfest. Huey Lewis and the News can still bring it, even though they all are collecting Social Security.
This is me hanging out at the replica Oval Office. I wasn't a big fan of the upholstery choice on the couches. Lloyd and I also saw the traveling exhibit of the miniature White House, which was quite impressive. I told him about the time I went to a press briefing in the West Wing's media room. The actual room at that time (I believe it has since been expanded) was not much larger than the model.
I enjoyed the Library and in general had an excellent time on my trip. Lloyd and Karl were gracious hosts. Thanks to them both.
I leave this Sunday for Yuma. I'm going to continue to blog right here on the Boom. I'm excited to see what actual legal work is like, so I'll let you know what is going on.
So keep it real, just not too real.
