On Day 2, I slept in – until almost 8 a.m! I had breakfast while checking the news on the status of the non-negotiations. After checking news, I got Sara up. What’s below her picture is what she put on her Facebook page about the day.
So today my Mom (who is a furloughed federal employee because of the U.S. government shutdown) went to the National Museum of Women in the Arts (one of the few open museums in town, since all of the free Smithsonian one are government funded and thus affected by the shutdown). We saw two excellent exhibits: The first was an exhibit of the art work of Audrey Niffenegger, who wrote Time Traveler’s Wife but who is primarily an artist. In the gift shop I picked up Raven Girl by Niffenegger. The second was an exhibit of the early work of the African American artist Faith Ringgold. I was primarily familiar with her because of her excellent children’s books. It was interesting to see her more overtly political work. The special exhibits are only there through November, but I presume they will be replaced by things which are equally excellent.
Amy here again. After lunch, we rode Metrorail back to Forest Glen and met Woody Brosnan; the entire family went to lunch at Savannahs in Kensington. Then home to check on the negotiations non-progress.
Later in the afternoon, I played 9 holes of golf at Sligo Creek Golf Course with Woody Brosnan and Karen Howland – a tuneup for Friday’s Sligo Creek Golf Association tournament. Hit the ball pretty well, too – straighter than I do sometimes!
