Working in the Washington, DC area has some cool perks. Crawling all over the Monuments on the Mall and parking damn near anyplace you want comes to mind. Then, there are those days in August that are so friggin' hot that it just isn't fun. Today was one of those days. We had installed 200 trees for the Smithsonian at the National Zoo in December 2009, and now they wanted a map of where the trees are located. So the foreman and I walked the Zoo for 4 hours documenting the condition and locations of all the trees. You can tell by the sweat under my man-boobs that this day kicked my ass. I wanted to jump in this fountain, I didn't care WHAT was living in there!
