Travel Channel

I sat and watched a show on the travel channel this morning-all about the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia. My sister, Linda use to live in Pennsylvania. Wish I had gone there now :) There are amazing stories in this museum...for those who are not faint of heart! Some of the displays are intesting and shocking...as you'll see when you click the link. I plan to visit this place someday-I was going to say, "before...I die."Maybe not the right words...

When I clicked a link to Amazon.com for the book about this museum, I found a travel spot in Pennsylvania, that I may have to check out also. It's a place called Frackville-with a pioneer woman statue and scary child. Wonder what the history is here...? Can you tell I need a long vacation? I'm lost in the world of the strange and interesting facts.

Roland and I did go see two Shakespeare plays this week. My sister, Sherri, took us to see, "Gaslight"-a serious mystery! (Excellent). We also went with my mom and sister to see, "Moonlight and Magnolias"...a hilarious story about the writing of the screenplay of Gone With the Wind. Three men locked in an office for five days- acting out the book and writing out the movie scenes...we laughed so hard, our sides hurt! Hearing grown men play the parts of Prissy and Scarlet O'Hara was a crack up!... This is a picture of Melanie talking to Scarlett as she "passes on". * (Wish I had a YouTube video to show ya').

I am laughing just looking at the photos. I can't image what I would be doing if I saw the play. Good for you for getting out there. I need to see a play.

Hey Dolly. You must be the nice dolly that offered to send frumpy a love train gift :) I am the Jan.

Sorry about disappointing you with Donny. They thought was nice, but I am not cut out for a fame life. Not that it would have ever ended up in a fame life :) So funny to have even had that chance. Oh well.

I lived in Philadelphia for four years and I never made it to the Mutter Museum! I know a lot of people who have been and they only had good things to say about it. I'm sure I'll make it there on a trip back into the city at some point, hopefully in the not-too-distant future. Thanks for reminding me of that crazy place!
