The Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon marches in front of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial on their way to perform for the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. April 12, 2014. The Silent Drill Platoon travels across the country and the world showcasing close-order drill and the precision for which the Marine Corps are known. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt.

Still headed home from D.C., detour for dear friend in Spokane, then Coeur d’Alene, now drive to Seattle for Alaska flight.
Inspiring stops at local small businesses along the way, like the Gross family’s “38 Years in the Baking” donut shop.
Family owned small businesses have been America’s economic heart and soul!
(Great donuts; keto starts again tomorrow )
