Roadside Sculptures

On my drive back from Ohio the end of October, I passed a group of folk arty metal sculptures along a fence in Mullinville, Kansas. They were funky and fun and political and wonderful. I googled them upon my return, and apparently a Mr. M. T. Liggett is the creator of these whirlygigs, windmills and sculptures. Thank you Mr. Liggett, I loved them, and I hope to go back someday and meet you!

Luna Parc

I heard about Luna Parc a couple years ago, and was thrilled to visit during it's semi-annual open house while I was back in New Jersey. Luna Parc is an incredible, colorful, fantabulous wonderland of creative genius! Thank you, Ricky, I absolutely LOVED it, and look forward to returning soon! I hope you made it thru Hurricane Sandy unscathed...check it out at Better yet, check it out at the next open house in June, it really needs to be experienced in person!

New York City, October 2012

My mother and I went to New Jersey for my aunt's 90th birthday celebration, and we spent a day in New York City. So cool!!! I'd thought, country bumpkin that I am, that I'd be freaked out, but I surprised myself by loving it! My cousin Deb was a great guide, and we saw Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Trump Tower, and even the Broadway play "Warhorse", which was fabulous. It's hard to believe the devastation that Hurricane Sandy has wreaked upon New Jersey and NYC since we were there just 2 weeks ago. Best wishes to everyone back there, my mom and I will back as soon as we can!
