When I say to Renee, "How would you like to go to…" she says yes before I tell her the destination. She loves driving anywhere and sometimes get very excited about the most mundane occasions. Today we took a trip to the Maridon Museum in Butler PA. It's about an hour from Pittsburgh and mostly was easy driving. The museum has a lot of high class, very expensive ivory and jade carvings, largely 20th C. stuff. I enjoyed seeing it, but it wasn't what I had hoped for.
Butler is an interesting looking town. We spent a little time looking around. Here is the tower of the Court House.
Detail on the front of the building:
Beautiful Lutheran Church across the street:
Robin and Charna with Darcy in her favorite position: looking for belly rubs.
We did a lot of dog walking over the weekend. Renee and I both needed the exercise.
I like the angle of the court house, and the way the bottom flag has unfurled itself makes it look like a man clinging there (or do I need to wash my glasses?). I remember going to Butler but don’t remember much else about it.
I like the thought of stopping in a foreign country for a while, and butler still has an Edwardian facade to offer us. Or Victorian. Your entries lately leave me with a smile. Little glimpses of new worlds, new venues. 🙂
Wow…that looks like it would have been interesting…glad to see you had a wonderful T-Day and didn’t have to cook…Shayne did the cooking this year and it was a real treat!
