Bubba gets some culture



In all the years that we have lived in the Washington, DC area we have never gone to see a production at Ford’s Theatre. So on Sunday, we decide to hop on Metrorail and catch a matinee of A Christmas Carol. The theatre is located just a couple of blocks from the Metro Center stop and since I hate driving in the city this worked out great. The theatre is fairly small and these matinees tend to sell out quickly. Our balcony seats weren’t the best but they weren’t too bad either.  The balcony has some real bad seats due to the support columns blocking views and if you are on the sides you lose part of the front of the stage. If I went again I would want to stay out of the balcony. The show was well done and we really enjoyed our afternoon. It was just the perfect thing to start the Holiday season.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
