Great day for a walk in McCrory Gardens to take a few pictures.
My favorite type of day to take pictures; lots of sun and a blue sky.
Every year, the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, Nebraska and the Hasting Museum allows individuals and organizations to decorate and display a Christmas Tree in their museums. Below is a dozen of these trees.
The Museum of World Treasure is located in Wichita, Kansas. It contain artifacts from ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. Their military exhibits dates from the Civil War to the fall of the Berlin Wall. As you enter the museum, T-Rex Ivan welcomes you.
Head up the stairs you are greeted by a suit of armour.
One of my goals when I visit a museum is to capture patterns, and ancient pottery works contains the most interesting designs. Along with rock formations.
The military exhibit contained the normal items you see at most exhibits, but it did have original letters written from that period of time. By today’s standards, these handwriting is a work of art. So, I wonder if the kids today did not know what the U.S. Constitution says, because the can no longer read it.
In a corner, where most people would miss seeing the display, are two tapestries. These were the most beautiful items on display at the museum.
The Fall Season has beautiful colors. The leaves are falling from the trees. The berries are a bright red. The sky is a brilliant blue (or it is when I go out.) It is enjoyable to go and experience that colors of fall. Sometimes, I capture something special.

The Wichita Art Museum exhibits work honoring women artists, pre-Columbian artifacts, glass works, and other sculptures and paintings. I found Kay Sekimachi’s Leaf Bowl a fascinating work of art.
The artist of the glass painting did a remarkable job capturing the light reflections.
The museum had some beautiful glass works.
One of the most interesting items in the museum was the history of the Corning Glass Works. Most of us have use Corning dishes. They made the first light bulb for Thomas Edison.
The blown glass exhibit featuring Richard Marquis was entertaining. His glass work was unique, humorous and creative.
Finally, the sculpture titled “Bed” by Lloyd Glasson was amazing.
I haven’t traveled very much since COVID, but I do live in a town with numerous Antique Stores. It is always fun to visit these stores capture photos of old interesting items.
This is a Fisher Price Tutor house. It dates back to the 1960’s. The selling price on Etsy ranges for $35.00 to $150.00. If you can not have a real doll house, why not own a plastic one.
Any child’s collection is not complete without the Fisher Price barn. Or, parents purchased the barn because all kids loved playing with animals. On Etsy this item is price between $12.00 and $90.00.
The Fisher Price School house. I know as a kid, we regularly played school. Our tiny desks were suppose to be for homework, but it was a convenient prop to play school. On Etsy this antique is priced between $16.00 and $60.00. This one is probably cheaper because I do not see little people.
Most people have heard the poem “The Old Women Who Lived in a Shoe”. Fisher Price made a shoe based on that poem. One of the benefits of the toy, it allowed children to practice tying shoes. Etsy has it priced around $15.00. The old women is priced at $8.00.
The Fisher Price Telephone, like the shoe, it came with a string so kids could pull it along. The condition of this toy, make $16.50 a little over priced.
The Fisher Price Goldilocks and Three Bears Playhouse. It came with a key to unlock the house. It is a rare item on Etsy, there is only four of these for sale.
The last toy I found was the Fisher Price Hickory Dickory Clock.
How can something dying be so glorious?
In October 2020, I went on an adventure to take picture of Fall. Since, I haven’t traveled outside the State in 2020 the pictures were taken at local parks. I have figured out why people love Fall so much, it is the colors. Green, Red, Oranges, and browns. The most difficult decision is: What pictures to include in the blog?
Here are a few pictures of my first outing since…. I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment. My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.
I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.
The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.
