More on the Week of Company

While the gang was here we went to Luray. While the ‘youngins’ checked out the caverns BFG, C.D., Mr.C, and I walked the greenway. There was an adorable new calf to behold!

C.D. and B.F.G. both enjoyed the walk.

The next day we did a road trip to Alexandria Virginia to check out the Torpedo Factory.

It is exactly that… an old torpedo factory which has been converted into many different art studios.

Three floors of art in many mediums… paint, fiber, clay, metal, glass, and…. gum?

Yes, GUM!  I had to sneak this picture especially for Mrs. Schmenkman.

    There ia a LOT to comment about on the post!
    1. Someone needs to give that calf a smooch on the nose.
    2. How much do I love the pictures of Deb and BFG and you and Mr. C????
    3. That’s a BIG OLE GUM PILE!!!!
    4. Life IS Good!
    5. Now why would one call somebody and OLD coot? It looks like a perfectly fine fowl to me.
    6. I like that stone/rock road muchly.
    7. The apothecary museum looks like something that could be found in Harry Potter’s wizarding world!
    8. Wish I could have been there.

    Those were some fun days! I loved it all, but perhaps the most memorable will be the apothecary museum….that handwritten order from Martha Washington just made it real….and made me thankful for our modern medicine.

    If I ever get to Virginia, I want to go to that Apothecary museum and the Torpedo Factory — they both looked like interesting and fun places.
    I guess you must have to reconstitute the Dragon’s Blood if they keep it in a drawer instead of a bottle!
    Nice photos of the people and the places.
