We both accepted jobs with the FBI and moved to Washington, DC driving a 1950 Plymouth and pulling an U-haul-it trailer with all our worldy possesions. We were too young and dumb to be afraid of what was ahead for us, so that wasn't a problem. One of my fellow employees at the FBI was Millie Parsons. She had been working there for a long time before I got there and a longer time after I left. Gerry and Millie were in the same Sorority a number of years later to add to the coincidence. To make a long story short, Millie passed away at 99 yrs of age and she had quite a story. I am including her obituary which details her life at the FBI. Read her obituary, it is worth it.

We stopped by and visited with Al today to give him a little help with his computer. His printer was causing some problems and acting up and I cleared up the problems for him. We sat around and visited with him for a while and then decided to go out for an early dinner.
We called our friend Ron K to see if he wanted to go along with us to the Hotrods Restaurant to check it out. It recently opened a few miles down the road from us and has an actual hotrod garage as part of the restaurant. The restaurant floor and tables are higher than the garage and are separated by windows so you can see them working on the cars, trucks and motorcycles below.
The meals were huge and fairly priced for what you got. The food was good, however Gerry's meal was a little cool. We all agreed it would be a place we will visit again while we are here.

It was sunset when we left and it had cooled down quite a lot and it was beautiful outside. It would have been a nice night to sit outside and enjoy a late happy hour, but we wanted to get back in time to see our favorite TV program, The Amazing Race. It's difficult being a slave to a tv program.
That was our day, how was yours?
