Below are the highlights of 2017.


Eileen flew to Los Angeles for a short visit with her sis, Sue. Sue lives nowhere near the areas that were recently so badly burned by wildfires.

Bruce and Andrew participated in "Wreaths Across America" at Arlington National Cemetery. The crowd was enormous, making travel by Metro touch and go. After laying two wreaths each on graves in Section 2, they walked several miles to have breakfast at a DC dive called Ollie's Trolley.

Bruce and Eileen went to National Harbor to finally take a ride on the Capital Wheel and experience "Ice", an ice scupting exhibit at the Gaylord Hotel and Resort, where they also spent the night.
