It's a gorgeous day in the DC area - perfect blue skies ad it will be around 70 this afternoon.

TOTD: Life at work is very busy and I can't commit to being here every Friday morning, so I would like to give up the Friday thread at this point. If you've been waiting for your chance to step up, this is it!!!

I'll end with a favorite question and probably the one I started with when I took up the day thread: if a painter from any time could paint you, who would it be? My answer would still be Thomas Eakins.
