Out with the old, in with the new!

Fred bought his 1998 Blazer used when we got to San Antonio in 2001, and it has been a great car over the years. It stayed remarkably low-mileage thanks to one year in storage (Iraq deployment) and numerous other years of hardly being driven because Fred was walking to work. It was the starter car for 2 kids and protected one of them in a fender bender. But things haven't been quite right since said fender bender, most recently the fact that you can't turn the heat off or direct what vent you want the hot air coming out of. So it was definitely time for Fred to get a new set of wheels!

Goodbye, Chevy Blazer!



Hello, Mazda CX5!

Oh, for the love of Pete!



Go away, winter! I am so done with you.

If you've gotta go, go Honda

We spent the day shopping for a new car for Fred. This sign on the back of the stall door in our local Honda restroom made me snicker like a 12-year-old boy:



It gives a whole new meaning to the question: "Why go anywhere but Honda?"

College reunion

Wonderful time tonight with members of Fred's War College seminar:



Having so many friends close by is definitely one of the best parts of living in the DC area!

Book of Mormon

One of Annabelle's Christmas presents was tickets to see Book of Mormon in Baltimore over spring break. Today was the big day, and the show was every bit as good as we had expected!

We took a selfie before the show:



After the show, the cast raised money for AIDS research in a number of novel ways. I paid 20 bucks to get our picture made with General B***-F***ing Naked:



Here are a couple of great video clips from the Tony awards:
