Friday's Fotos: Marilyn Forever

Not many guys get Marilyn Monroe for a birthday present, but Roi Barnard, one of the founders of Salon Roi on Connecticut Avnue, got a young, beautiful Marilyn mural that looks down from his four level restored brownstone.  John Bailey painted the mural in 1980, when M.Barnard turned 40, and since then, she has turned into a major neighborhood landmark.I swear she winked at me the other day.
