On Sunday, the folks took a day trip to Annapolis, MD. They toured the Naval Academy. It is huge! Students attend for four years and then, Mom thinks, they commit to six years of service. Mom said it looks really hard and it really is a big achievement when they graduate. They are officers when they graduate.
Mom was surprised by how crowded Annapolis is. It wasn't full of people as much as the streets are narrow with parking on both sides. They took a trolley tour and the driver had problems in some areas.

|This is the WWII memorial.|
|This was across from where they parked. The capitol is in the background.|
|Ego Alley - it is supposed to be full of expensive yachts, but not on Sunday.|

After the tour, the folks ate at Middleton Tavern. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin were regular patrons It was established in 1750.

Mom hasn't been feeling well this week. She woke up with a stiff shoulder on Monday but then she started having spasms in her back. She has a history of back problems. When she was 12, she was in a car accident where she hit and broke the windshield. She figures that is why she has issues. Monday, we took it easy. Yesterday, she started using her walking stick on our walks because her legs were really hurting when she walked. She has never had that happen before. The walking stick helped quite a bit. She was really tired yesterday and took a few naps. Today, she is feeling much better which is good, except now she feels good enough to vacuum.
It is a rainy day today, but we sat out under the awning after our chores were done. They are cutting the grass in the rain because this weekend is the Truck and Tractor Show and they have to be ready for it. It will be across from us, but the folks will be gone doing other things this weekend. I will have to keep an eye on things, I guess.
