I got the Al’s Hammer

I thought I had already posted this, but realized I hadn’t when Miko asked about it.  The trip was fabulous.  I loved the beauty of the countryside.  So many beautiful towns that were so “Mid-America”.  Very Norman Rockwell and all.  I met most of Char’s family, all of whom I liked and who were warm and welcoming.  One of the BIG highlights of the trip, though was getting to see the 4 exhibits of Dale Chihuly glass at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, which were beautiful for their flowers alone. Char and I turned out to be great traveling companions, and if she ever invites me along on a trip again, I am so outta here.

On the photos, I recommend that you just go through them one by one by using the “next” button, near the top of the photos and to the right. There are parts where there are items to be read, and the slideshow function really does not provide enough time.
So, without further ado, the photos from Char & Karen’s Excellent Adventure

    Thank you for posting, I loved perusing your pics! I agree, very Norman Rockwell (hugely popular in Japan, BTW). You are beautiful and don’t look your age at all! And you obviously had a splendid time, met some warm and wonderful people, and saw some wonderful sights. Glassworks are popular in Japan, albeit on a much smaller scale, and the Dale Chihuly stuff was simply stunning.

    I can’t wait to go on the road once I retire, only I’m planning to take an “ex-boyfriend-tour-of-the-world” type trip. I’ll certainly be going to some interesting places, all right! Unfortunately the only place I’ll be visiting in N. America is … um … Kansas.

    Oh, yes, we’ve discussed the “Miko Ex-Boyfriend World Tour”, tee shirts. I want one. Hey, you’re a rock star. You should have a shirt. Kansas – not the best looking state in the union.

    No, probably not the best looking state, but apparently all I have to do is click my heels three times and I’m out of there. I think my tee-shirt should say “Been there, done that, bought the tee-shirt!” Or possibly “I messed with Texas.”
