So instead of letting the malaise creep over me, I packed the kids onto the Metro and we headed to Arlington to visit my grandpa. Each of the kids took something special to place on his headstone. Abby added the flower.Plus it was only 90* and threatening thunderstorms. Had to take advantage. As we were walking towards our section, there was a piper in full Scottish dress tuning his pipes. When the notes hit Jeffrey’s ears, he absolutely lit up. We stood and watched him until he finished. Nice bonus.
