Do you see Howdy? A shy ginger man.
Sometimes Jem and I like to go for an outing, a day-date of sorts.
The Museum District is a Good Place for an Outing.
Let's eat food first...
A simple lunch. The real genuine, delightful hole in the wall original restaurant, the area is an eclectic mix of old but posh, strange but charming, both cottages and large estates. This little place is known for it's tamales. The original owner, Mr. Walter Berryhill sold the tamales in this area from a little street car, the old street cart is there on display.
Love this old tile where our little outside table is.
Jem reads a text from the girls...Marianna tells us we are acting like old retired people. We stuff ourselves. I had the most delicious, chubbiest spinach and corn tamales ever..
So now what do you want to do? Let's just drive around and see....
These guys must be escapees from the Rice University lab. Is this display not great? The skeletons are seeking refuge here.
The skeletons will have a nice view.
We pass the lovely fountains and onto the other side...
The hospital where Marianna was born in the distance.
Sam Houston Statue. I remember this museum area from when I was a little girl...Deep thoughts and contemplations here since I recently lost my dad as many of you know.
...My dad and his friends climbed this statue one night in his college days, the task given was to take a plaster mold of a part of the horse. The story goes that the police were amused and actually stood and watched. Oh the stories I have..
Yes, those young men were full of "honesty and goodness"...their task was not detoured. eh hem.
Well I guess it's time to go home to the Forest?
I do hope you enjoyed the sampling of randomness and fun. : )
So do you like simple outings too?
Back home....And to all a good night...
Mo-Mo and Howdy. Sister, brother peacefully sleeping while their naughty mi-mi and po-po are away..
