~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.06 -- "F" is for ...
( 1) Starts with "F": "F" is for 'Fantabulous "F"'. These are three of my Fantabulous Four Friends . Mrs. Jim, Karen (missing here), KP, and BP

(2) Week's Favorite: Washington, D.C, beckoned us. We went to attend the Georgetown University's production of "The Phantom Tollbooth" which was produced by our granddaughter, BP. BP is now a sophomore at Georgetown. Of course we had front row seats.
If you haven't read the book, I think that you will like it. A little like each of Alice in Wonderland and of The Wizard of Oz. Here is as synopsis of that book. Written by Norton Juster with illustrations by Jules Feiffer, it was published in 1961. "Though the book is on its face an adventure story, a major theme is the need for a love of education.
On Saturday Morning BP lead us with a group of others on a Campus Tour. One of her part time jobs is with the Admissions Office who is responsible for Campus tours. We had the best campus tour I can remember having.
(3) Heart : I have always admired Peter Max. He paints many Statue of Liberty, American Patriotic emblems, Angels, and Hearts. He has donated his painting, "Angel with Heart" to the Heart Institute housed in St. Luke's Hospital, Houston Medical Center.
Max also sells a poster sized print of this picture. One of his "Angel with Heart" poster pictures is on my Bucket list.
You can read more of Peter Max and his painting and this one at my 2007 blog posting, "My very own Peter Max" (link).

More Georgetown pictures:
Our tour guide said the Secret Service was not happy with this cannon as no weapons are allowed this close to the Capital buildings. Finally a compromise was arranged and now this is the closest piece of artillery to the Capital area.
...........................We walked through this building, ground floor.
The classrooms are nice.
..................We ended our tour at the Bookstore, just like they end up at the gift shop on the commercial tour. Each of the girls were rewarded by Bill with a new water bottle with the Georgetown University logo.
It was at the book store that I found out from a phone call from my sister that my cousin, John, had died. John stayed at home in Nebraska. We were nine cousins, all grandchildren from my dad and his three brothers. Don, Bud, Lois, Ione, and I all moved away to Missouri, Colorado, Iowa, Arkansas, and me in Texas.
We did not get up to the funeral but do plan on going to the midlands in the summer. My sister comes to Texas regularly to visit her daughter and family, a husband, three grandchildren, in-laws, and a great-grandchild, and ME, her brother.
