The Bean and I took out on a Friday Field Trip yesterday. Our first step was a Public Library about 25 miles away. I'm not sure how they got it, but somehow they snagged the model of Rexy from Night at the Museum. It's not the life sized model, but the model they used in the computer stuff. He's still pretty good sized - about 20 feet long or so.
I also taught him how to use the "Card Catalog". I use quotes becuase it really doesn't even exist anymore - it's all computerized. Sort of sad. I'd like to have one of those card catalog cabinets to suet the TV on.....Oh, what? Sorry. Miss Thrift took over. I can't believe they don't reach them how to use the Card Catalog anymore!
After we left the library, we passed this sign:
No big deal to most of you, but it's the only one in the STATE and we had never seen it before yesterday. Did we stop?
The guy behind the counter gave The Bean a quick rundown of how they make the donuts. Educational, no?
Next stop - an old railroad car. We read about and learned a bit about the Frisco Railroad and what they transported from this area. (Apples, if you are playing along at home).
Across the brick street from the railroad car was the "Dollar Saver". It is in an incredibly old falling down historical building and has been there forever. I hadn't been in there for over 20 years. I remember the back corner was the fabric corner - rows of wooden racks with bolts of material and a cabinet full of embroidery floss and buttons in the back corner. I could remember it like it was yesterday. It looked just like this: Seriously, it had not changed one itty bity bit. I think it was the same material even! Time warp!
What's that? In the corner????? Could it be the real thing? And only $129.00!
Hey! How'd they get my wedding picture???????
(If I was rich, I would buy this).
On the way home, The Bean snapped photos of clouds for Monday's "Cloud Identity" lesson.
It was a good day.
And, yes, we went thrifitng. But, I'll save that for the next post.
