Here I am in the lobby of the Willard Hotel, as we were “Christmas lobbying”, which means listening to music. We heard the Washington Chorus Outreach Singers. They were wonderful, however, I had made a mistake in the date, as I thought I was going to hear Children’s Chorus of Washington. They perform tonight, and I have doubts I can convince Cliff to return. We walked the two long blocks from the Metro to the Willard in cold and blustery winds. And back of course. The Willard’s website promised refreshments, as in “Complimentary hot-spiced cider and gingerbread sweets will provide the perfect accompaniment.” We stayed more than an hour and we never found them nor saw evidence of “complimentary” goodies. However, Cliff snapped this nice picture of me in front of their “complimentary” Christmas tree.
