Well, hello---I found this cryptic note on my desk this morning asking if I'd be so kind as to post a few words on this interesting blog. I decided, sure, why not? I'm taking a few minutes to sip a fresh mug of strong coffee, so I'll post a few words. And photos. There was a portfolio of photos attached. A little strange, I thought, but then I work in Washington, DC where nothing is too strange. Anything can happen in this city and frequently does. I know, because I grew up here.
My father was a United States Senator, so I got used to politicians and politics early on. Then I married my college sweetheart who I met at Georgetown University. He became a lawyer in his home state of Colorado after we married, but he was appointed to a vacant seat in the US Congress, and we came back here---to my hometown, Washington, DC. Everything was great for a few years, then. . . but, that's enough about me.
Let me show you some of my favorite Washington places before I have to return to my office. Here's a great place to walk and enjoy---it's along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal which runs through Georgetown---
I work for a US Senator from Colorado now. John Russell is the newly-elected Independent Senator from Colorado, and that means both sides of the aisle are courting him. This will be fun to watch. :) My office is in the Senator's gorgeous Georgetown home. I walk to work every morning through picturesque Georgetown streets. The Senator's chief-of-staff, Peter Brewster, made me an offer I couldn't refuse: free rent on one of his Georgetown townhouses, only three blocks from the Senator's mansion. Here are some of the streets I walk. Needless to say, I took him up on his offer.
Sorry, but I have to get back to work now. Emails and accounts are calling. This note says there's more information at www.maggiesefton.com---excerpts from DEADLY POLITICS and reviews. I have NO idea what that means. But, I hope you enjoy the photos. Maybe we'll do this again. Bye, now.
