IN THE DISTRICT OF C, WASHINGTON.

 

Who said Hollywood Boulevard? Please leave!

I’m actually on the east, or right coast as they say, in the District of Columbia.

My size 9 is at the virtual center or centre of western power under the Dome of the Capitol Building.  Abe Lincoln’s seat is at my 4 o’clock, so to speak.

Abe was here!

Let me put it this way……..

Abe I suspect would have blushed had he known somehow that he would be forever recognised as the great liberator of slaves.

THEY DID WHAT? DID THE FOLLS MAKE ANOTHER FILM ABOUT ME? I'M GREAT BUT NOT GOD!

THEY DID WHAT? DID THE FOOLS MAKE ANOTHER FILM ABOUT ME?  I’M GREAT BUT NOT GOD!

Moreover Abe might have been more concerned that people everywhere over the next century would choose to enslave themselves, by running like ostriches to a movie theatre for very light entertainment in the dark!

 

 

 

More interestingly in a half-light was the old US Senate

Excuse me Miss, which way to........

Excuse me Miss, which way to……..

Leaving 5 hours later, as the staff were expected to do too.

a beautiful smile is always welcome, after the business in Congress

A government worker with a beautiful face and a smile to go with it, is always memorable

As to the Gravatar inquiry which asks 'About Me' ? There is a life sustaining atmosphere. If they meant ...a description; there is more than the fraction shared online.

    Incidentally, could Hollywood moguls or their scribes stop following my lead here:-( Similarly on the reference to F S Fitzgerald’s Gatsby elsewhere on this site, which I alluded to quite some time ago.

  2. I refer to latest cinema releases or escapes on parole, Lincoln, and Gatsby.
