We slept in this morning. I got up about 9am. The navigator finally struggled out of bed around 10:30am. He went out and peed and then went back to bed. While he was snoozing, I took a shower and got cleaned up.

Today we're headed to Washington, DC. Our plan was to make a political statement tonight. But I discovered from Gas Buddy, there's nothing but higher prices. So we'll fill up before we leave here.

Written later...

The two political statements went well. Links will be created soon and I will post the links when available. As expected, The Navigator had a total blast.

Tonight we're camped near Silver Spring, Maryland. The exact location must remain a secret. We promised not to tell :) Suffice it to say I feel very secure, surrounded as we are by military security.

Tomorrow, Maryland, Delaware, a ferry ride and New Jersey.

From Capriole in MD:

I don't have any problems that can't be solved by more chocolate or more ammunition.

From Denise in IN:

Marriage, Part I, II, III, IV and V (Sorry, guys :)

Marriage, Part I

A typical macho man married a typical good-looking lady and after the wedding, he laid down the following rules:

"I'll be home when I want, if I want and at what time I want and I don't expect any hassle from you. I expect a great dinner to be on table unless I tell you that I won't be home for dinner. I'll go hunting, fishing, boozing and card-playing when I want with my old buddies and don't you give me a hard time about it. Those are my rules. Any comments?"

His new bride said, "No, that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here at seven o'clock every night... whether you're here or not."

(DAMM SHE'S GOOD!)

Marriage, Part II

A husband and wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th wedding anniversary!

The husband yells, "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads: "Here Lies My Wife - Cold As Ever "

"Yeah?" she replies. "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads: "Here Lies My Husband Stiff At Last"

(HE ASKED FOR IT!)

Marriage, Part III

A husband (a doctor) and his wife are having a fight at the breakfast table. The husband gets up in a rage and says, "And you are no good in bed either," and storms out of the house.

After sometime, he realizes he was nasty, decides to make amends and rings her up. She comes to the phone after many rings, and the irritated husband says, "What took you so long to answer the phone?"

She says, "I was in bed."

"In bed this early, doing what?"

"Getting a second opinion!"

(YEP, HE HAD THAT ONE COMING, TOO!)

Marriage, Part IV

A man has six children and is very proud of his achievement. He is so proud of himself that he starts calling his wife, "Mother of Six" in spite of her objections.

One night, they go to a party. The man decides that it's time to go home and wants to find out if his wife is ready to leave as well. He shouts at the top of his voice, "Shall we go home 'Mother of Six?'"

His wife, irritated by her husband's lack of discretion, shouts right back, "Anytime you're ready, Father of Four."

(RIGHT ON, LADY!)

Marriage, Part V, The Silent Treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." and left it where he knew she would find it.

The man woke up the next morning, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.

The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

(Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.)
