As fate would have it, OZZU founder and owner, Bigwebmaster has finally decided to take a short stint away from his home away from home in the Beautiful but often raining and depressing state of Washington, USA, and has decided to bring his lovely wife and himself to a less environmentally abusive state like Virginia to the US Capital of Washington DC, and has been exploring our beloved National Capital for the last few days. We're meeting at Joe Theismann's restaurant in Alexandria VA for some beers and some games if any of you are local and want to come on Sunday 10/27/13 at approximately 12:30PM ET. Hoping to get the original Supermod UNFLUX here too since he is close and interested and also grinch if he can swing by. Joebert how long will it take you to get here from Florida to get a pic of all four of us together?? I seriously doubt ROSE will be able to make it in time since the flight from Australia would put her well into Monday. Open invite to anyone that can get here...

Unfortunately Sunday isn't going to work for me as much as I would like to. If things change I will definitely let you guys know.

The Marine Corps Marathon is going on Sunday so be careful of road closures:

Not sure if any will affect Alexandria but something to consider if your in the city.

I did see signs everywhere in DC for the marathon, and WA states senator Patty Murray's assistant told us about that today :)

Would love and welcome anybody from Ozzu in the area to join us. It is sort of a last minute thing, I was originally planned to be here a few weeks ago but delayed the trip due to the government shutdown, so really didn't know when we would be coming. Anybody and everybody is welcome to join us!

It's funny, my brother has recently moved to the Washington area. Had this been next year there is a good chance I may have visited as I'm working on heading to USA sometime next year.

In spite of the fact that it's badly out of focus, have to post this one just because of the look in their eyes... lol

Just out of curiosity to see if anyone is paying attention, has anyone noticed the rule of thirds on the three photos I took? Assneck remind me to teach you the rule of thirds...

@Brian, I don't know, but if I had the means of a Nikon like Bryan has or the luxury of a really nice Cannon, I'd be happy to do a heads up photography challenge. Can't wait to see what he did with his Nikon. Overall I'm pretty content with what my iPhone produces/

After more than 10 yrs of knowing each other by the magic of the internet, we finally were able to meet in 'real life!' But who woulda guessed they were huggers? This is why you have to be super-cautious. Internet people can be such freaks! :lol:

Well, hell. That's what I get for not logging in enough. Not sure I could have made it that far anyway, but it would have been interesting to try.

Maybe next time. :)

Merry Christmas to you too! I hope you have a good one in sunny Oz.

I'm due a trip over to your part of the world soon. It was 6 years ago I was celebrating Christmas in Australia last. I can't believe it's been so long.
