THE SHUT-IN MAKES AN ESCAPE!

Well, the sun came out bright and cheery, the arctic winds ran out of air and the temp climbed to 36F … and I took advantage to escape the confines of home. Actually, I need groceries. So I bundled up and jumped on the Metro bus.

My bus ride took me through Forest Park.DSC09029

Going past the History Museum reminded me that I have to get over there soon to see the special exhibit on the 250th birthday of the fair city on the Mississippi. The actual founding date will be on February 14.  Did the French who founded the city celebrate Valentine’s Day. I’ll have to look it up.

The park itself wasn’t very photogenic today, but the sky was sure blue.DSC09045

Once I got through the park I stopped for lunch.DSC09049

OK, I’ve had a craving for the Taco Salad for weeks. After that I picked up the groceries and headed home.

DSC09059 For my Origami challenge today I decided to do one of the beginner folds from the Star Wars book I received for Christmas.DSC09053

Here’s how mine turned out …DSC09055

Pretty close to the book illustration. The paper is preprinted with details of the item being folded and if you get of the folds correct it had better look like the item.

MY MUG OF THE DAY: Better late than never. This morning I had a PB&J sandwich and a mug of milk.Mug7

I don’t know if you can remember the time McDonald’s gave the Flintstone Mugs away, but this was one of them. The mugs came in a variety of shapes and sizes, but although they were glass they were designed to look like they were carved out of stone. While I never managed to get the complete set, I did have several of them. This is the only one left.  It’s now an antique.

  1. I don’t remember seeing the Flintstone mugs, ever. Cool that you still have one.
