It’s that time of the week to join Jenny for Alphabe-Thursday. I’m just back from a trip to Washington D.C. with my Dear and have some fun E’s to share.
The Postal Museum had an great A to Z exhibit and this is the display for the letter E. E is for EFOs ~ “Errors, freaks and oddities”
I’ll be sharing a new stamp display for each letter of the alphabet.
Ellen b. was ecstatic to find this great eatery in D.C. The Old Ebbitt Grill is Washington’s oldest, most historic saloon. It was founded in 1856. It has evolved over the years from a boarding house to a saloon and now to a restaurant. It also had several moves over the years and has been at this location at 675 15th St. N.W. since 1983. The brochure calls it a virtual saloon Smithsonian.
It is just a couple blocks from the White House. We were happy to be dropped off close to the front door of Ebbitt’s on our Trolley Tour. Washington D.C. is amazing to visit but your eyes and feet get tired from all the seeing and walking. You also get quite thirsty on a hot humid day.
After our crab cake sandwich we decided to share this dessert…
Ellen B. was happy to be off her feet in front of food and a drink.
On our last day in D.C. while Dear was busy at his conference I went back to Old Ebbitt for breakfast. I had strawberry french toast with ham and it was the best ham I’ve ever tasted. My breakfast was just over $10.00 with coffee included. That’s a deal in D.C.! From Ebbitt Grill I decided it was time to go get a closer view of the White House. One of my favorite experiences in D.C. happened there.
I saw an Ecuadoran family and the son asked me to take a photo of the family here with the White House in the background. After I took the photo of the family I asked the young Ecuadoran to please take my photo, too. I stepped over to the fence and the little old Ecuadoran mother wouldn’t budge from her spot. She wanted a photo with me. The son tried to convince his mother to get out of the photo but she said NO! I love this photo and I was happy to have it with her. After the son took it he finally convinced her to move out and took another photo of just me and the White House. Fun times in D.C. with my new Ecuadoran friend! Ecuadoran or Ecuadorian are both correct in referring to someone from Ecuador.
That’s a wrap for the letter E. We just got home yesterday and I’m still adjusting to the time change. Spring has finally arrived here and I’ll have to get out and mow the lawn. Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
