If you're in the traveling mood, meander over to Blog Around the World today. Debbie's hosting Mrs. Scribe as a "Guest Blogger." Watch with amusement as your Intrepid & Sometimes Silly Scribe attempts to scribble away about All Things Inaugural, from the hordes who descend on DC, to the port-a-potties provided for said masses.
Y'all might remember that Mrs. Scribe's October Debut over at BATW had political overtones, as well. Still can't get over the image of Mr. Obama and Mrs. Palin dancing, practically Cheek to Cheek!
But that was yesterday's news. Today's snap features these cool-as-beans Metro Cards. Metro is the "official" name for the subway that zooms all over City & Suburb, carrying us Hither & Yon, on above- & below-ground lines known by their colors: Orange, Blue, Yellow, Green, Red & soon-to-be Purple.
Metro doesn't adorn its farecards with the visage of the President for every Inauguration. Only if the new Prez creates enough "buzz," they say. The only other President to be honored in this way was Bill Clinton, back in 1992.
Sales of these Way Cool collectors' items will go toward hooking up extra cars to trains & running trains more frequently on Inauguration Day to accommodate the gazillion-and-a-half folks they're expecting. Mrs. Scribe purchased these 4 Metro cards as a "keepsake," of sorts. Part of History, & all that janx.
Playing along today with Candid Carrie, & her Fabulous Friday Foto Finish Fiesta!
