Seems the only time I bother to post is on Sunday's anymore! This time of year is pretty mundane with working all week and not doing much else. There's really nothing to post about unless we decide to venture out of the house like we did today.
The Detroit Historical Museum was offering 1/2 of admission this weekend so Rich and I figured it would be worth $3 to take a drive to downtown Detroit and check it out. I'm sure that sometime during my school days I went there but it was so long ago that I really don't remember anything.
It was kind of interesting to walk around and look at the different displays about the history of Detroit and Michigan. I won't bore you with pictures of boring stuff but there was a couple of things I though were fun:
Excuse the blurry picture but this just cracked me up. Apparently Michigan had a reputation as a disease-ridden swampland in the early 1800's! You can't really read the caption but it says "Don't go to Michigan that land of ills. The word means ague, fever, and chills" Written in 1820.
I loved seeing this because I had both of those Barbie cases! It really brought back memories of how much fun I had playing with those dolls with my friends!
There were lots of old dolls on display, too. Some of them were interesting.
And some of them were a little scary! I wouldn't have this one in my house!
And they probably could have done a little better representing the Girl Scouts!
The lower level of the museum was modeled after old Detroit with cobblestone streets.
All in all I'm glad we went. Next time we may go here;
The Detroit Institute of Arts. Although we'll have to be really bored and looking for something to do because I have no appreciation for art!
On other news...my supervisor at work is retiring in two weeks after working at U of M for 47 years! I will be sad to see her go but I'm happy for her, too.
I'm retiring too....in about 9 years!
Have a good week. I'll be back next Saturday for the Brenda Photo Challenge!
