Drivng along H street in front of Whitehouse today.

We drove around DC today and passed by the WH on H street which is the closest anyone can get to the WH these days. Here are a few shots of the fence on H street.







There were also lots of police cars everywhere. But no issues. It was a different vibe today in DC. People seemed to be upbeat for obvious reasons. There were lots of folks like us driving around and walking around the city just to take in the new feeling of optimism. It was a refreshing and uplifting feeling.

We walked around a bit but it was painful. We did see some golfing diehards playing golf at Hains Point! Crazy!

13. Yes very windy. There were even whitecaps on the Potomac near Hains Point.

Not a great day to walk around but there were still lots of folks out and about.

17. I guess it dates those of us that remember the show's dispatch woman's voice saying "1-Adam-12" nt.

21. The original show predates me.

I vaguely remember the remake television series in the late 80's/early 90's.


My go-to website for getting a definition for a slang word is generally at Urban Dictionary. One of the submitted definitions states that it's a reference to that show.

16. I hear you about the optimism. I feel it too! All the way from my home state.

A great weight lifted off our shoulders when Trump slinked away from the White House for the last time. The last four years have been a sort of slow-burn trauma, a kind of death by a thousand cuts.

Finally the cancer, the suppurating pustule that is Donald Trump, is GONE.

I hope they're gone soon.

20. Looks like America's bulletin board.

We probably need a park in DC just for that. Makes me think of my refrigerator door but on a huge scale....

I hope the White House can return to a degree of normalcy now as opposed to the three-ring circus it has been.

The Biden Administration has already given us lots of hope and stability and they're just getting started. This reset and renewal feels extremely good.

Thanks for sharing the good pix...... ...... .....
