The picture of the lincoln memeorial was as close as i could get to it. there was a concert going on. Then the next picture was just of the people on the mall for the concert at the Lincoln Memorial. The next picture was taken by a military guy who had been in the warming tent since 7 in the morning. we showed up at around 330 in the afternoon. Lynn just happened to be standing next to me when the guy took the picture. The next one is of the Virginia Military Institute. They brought all the students in the school, I think. The blurry picture is the last turn in the parade before we passed President Obama.
Right now, I'm watching the Florida/Oklahoma game. it looks pretty familiar. Urban Meyer has a pretty distinctively unstoppable offense. Florida faltered for the first few minutes of the game, but then they sacked OK's quarterback and now they are looking pretty good. Its how all the "tough" games looked in U of U's 2004 season. The question near the end of those games was always, do we go for 75 points or just settle for a 30 point lead? So the Sugar Bowl was really fun. Except I had pus building in my tooth the whole time. Every time I would eat or drink something it would flare up, and that was with a steady stream of Ibuprofen. I had a hard time getting to sleep.
So hear are a lot of pictures from New Orleans. I'm pretty sure they won't all fit in one post so we'll split them up. the thumb pictures are of the blisters we got on our thumbs from 2 and a half hours of drumming, after not playing at all for a few weeks.
