My Day Off

I got half my display for the library installed yesterday morning. They have two display cases and I was asked to be the June gig - pretty cool. The other case won't be empty until next week so I have some time to think about it. This one is hats and bags, and while I was putting it together, one of the staff bought a bag which paid for lunch and my museum tour, with change. Amy, Allison and her daughter Phoebe and I met for lunch at the museum restaurant, an extension of the Cheese Board and Wine. The food and company was delightful.

The Nevada Museum of Art only permits photo-
graphy of the rooftop gallery, and I thought this sculpture against the Porsche Building was pretty cool. Beryl had emailed me earlier in the week to tell me that they had driven over from California to see the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit and that it was wonderful. I live here and I hadn't seen it! He's one of my American icons and so her email had put the wheels in motion.
I liked this sculpture a lot, but those sharp pointy bits are just as sharp and pointy as they look. I think its looks like an idea for an episode of Monk, which Ian and I are totally hooked on through Netflix. I don't know why we pay for satellite when all we watch is Netflix. And when we finish with Monk, I think we're going to watch Northern Exposure. By the way, the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit was just as wonderful as Beryl said.
This exhibit is Mt. Rose, recently recrowned with snow - I love living in the Sierra's backyard. I am a huge FLW afficionado and just glad I didn't miss the change to see this collection. Ian and I got to see his windows exhibit at the Building Museum in DC. I need pay closer attention to our local museum's schedule. Note to self~

I watch virtually NO t.v. anymore; with the addition of Brian, sheep, spinning and knitting to my life there are other things I'd rather (and must) do with my time. But back when I DID watch a little t.v., Northern Exposure and Monk were FAVES. Several years ago the annual Cowboy Campmeeting event I've mentioned was held just outside of Roslyn, WA, where Northern Exposure was filmed. It was so COOL to ride down Main Street on my horse and recognize the buildings!

Trying to get to bed before midnight, so I'd better scat. I have a terrible time going to bed when Rick's out of town!

I will have to get over there for a visit! I hadn't realized there was such a swanky museum in Reno...

Your display looks very nice. Hope you put your name and number somewhere so interested people can contact you. I'm sure you'll have interested folks with such an attractive display.
