Mrs. E. and I have stumbled across a solution to the often unpleasant task of traveling for annual cancer checkups. Yes, we could have hers done here, but she’s part of a clinical study at Duke University Medical Center as she is so unusual in so many ways. (A fact that will come as no surprise to her many admirers.) I imagine that business travelers do this a lot. We treat ourselves.
In our case, we choose to stay at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Course for an extra nigh. A place that makes me want to learn to golf and that is of special interest to me as it has ties to the family which had two of the best dressed men in its lineage.
We are, of course, hard pressed to find anyone who is as well-turned out as Amb. Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, Jr. these days. Although I will try when we dine this evening at the Foursquare restaurant.
If you can, have a little fun doing the less pleasant tasks which fall your way. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy indeed.
