Did you watch Stephen Colbert last night? It’s an eye opener veiled in humor.
Wonder why the Senator from West Virginia is against the Biden legislation? He made half a million in coal profits last year, his son manages a coal company, and coal money is streaming into his campaign coffers. Guess we all know where his interests lie…in his self interest, not for his people.
In the meantime, West Virginia as well as all of us are drowning in the affects of this dirty energy.
Next wonder…whose contributing to the Arizona Senator’s campaign?
Followed this recall and grateful for the results. $200 million spent on California state funds for this. Can you imagine how many shelters for homeless that would have paid for. Money misspent for craziness. Enough said.
Let’s take a peek at all five starting with Buffalo Bill. Was unaware of Buffalo Bill Cody till visiting this town. He was a famous showman and footage of his shows run non-stop in this area of the Museum. He traveled the world doing his shows spending 5 years in Europe, and 30 years on the road. The art and pageantry was robust with his shows requiring 3 railroad cars for transport of props. Some memorabilia on display at the Museum.
The Art Museum – much Western art was displayed here.
Frederick Remington was a personal friend of Cody’s and his studio is in the Museum,
along with a special picture of Cody. Had never seen a Remington painting, only his sculptures. Beautiful.
The sculpture collection was profound.
And if an art lover don’t miss the outside sculptures,
and here you will find Cody’s childhood home as well as a children’s playground. Never saw that in a museum before.
Somehow in the journey returned through Utah, then on to more mountains.
During a flat stretch of road two hours away from destination located a former haunt my daughter and I visited. Here we rented a cabin and watched movies on the drive in screen from our cabin porch. Unsure if things have changed but if you want a unique adventure check out the Spuds Drive-In. Believe they have started doing music festivals.
Then on to another mountain pass. What views and hair pin turns..
After this portion of the journey found myself in Jackson Hole. What a beautiful spot with many bike trails, shops, restaurants, music venues, and homes starting at 2.5 million according to the local newspaper. It is the haunt of many Hollywood types and for us normal folk it is a pleasant pass through on the way to the National Parks.
There are several entrances to Yellowstone. Taking the southern entrance allows you to visit The Grand Teton National Park first then journey north to Yellowstone. See both. Each have separate fees, however, a combination pass can be purchased. This portion of the Park is free.
Tetons on the way to the actual park. While the smoke from the California wildfires hid the majesty of these Tetons, one can make out in the shadows their majesty.
What an amazing site, and the sites have only begun. Each time I thought I had seen the most amazing view another surpassed the former. Stay tuned.
Busy Hickory Day, and we aren’t done! Since Hickory was once, or possibly still is, the Furniture Capitol of the World sought out this spot to see the latest furniture designs. This Mart attracts folks from all over the world and I can understand why. The variety and selections are extensive in this 4 level building of the best names in furniture.
And, if you don’t have the time or desire there are the Designing Women.
Let’s take a look around, starting with the living room. Chatted with one salesgal and she said beige was this year’s color. Like the color accents, don’t you??
Interesting to see the construction of the chairs..
Next on to Amish furniture – great display of baby and young children furniture
Liked this table and it’s wood was something I’d never seen.
