The Weisman Art Museum

Behold! The Weisman Art Museum!

Okay, okay. Technically this museum is in Minneapolis. (Forgive me Voix?) But I mean, come on! That gorgeous shot deserves to be posted. Here's a description from the museum website.

Housed in a striking stainless steel and brick building designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Weisman Art Museum offers an educational and friendly museum experience. The museum's collection features early 20th century American artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Marsden Hartley, as well as a diverse selection of contemporary art. A teaching museum for the University of Minnesota and the community, the Weisman provides a fresh, engaging arts experience through an array of programs and a changing schedule of exhibitions.

Another gorgeous spring day!

We've been amazingly blessed with fabulous weather the past few days and today, we took advantage and went for a nice, long ride on the moto. Here's a view of Minneapolis taken from one of the many parks along the Mississippi River.

Everyone has a happy place. This is my friend H's happy place. We went there together today and strolled around for an hour. I took a zillion pictures. H coveted a zillion plants. It was fabulous!

It's Spring When A Young Man's Attention Turns To......

Prom? I saw this sign on Larpenteur and thought it was so cute!

Minnesota Rollergirls

If you haven't been to a bout yet, I highly recommend it! Fast roller action, girl on girl fights, PBR in cans! What's not to love?

Lock and Dam #1

Because of the Ford Plant, the Mississippi River is dammed to provide power. The lock and dams are built to provide passage for barges and pleasure boats. It makes for a lovely outing on a warm spring day.

What a sap!

My next door neighbor Rose has two big maples in her yard. Every spring another of my neighbors, John, taps her maples for the sap. Sometimes, I get jars of homemade syrup. Yum!

Robert Street Red Cross

Charles Schultz, the creator of the cartoon Peanuts, was from St. Paul. For several years in a row, Peanuts characters were purchased and adopted by a variety of groups and businesses. The statues were decorated and then put on display around the city. The practice was eventually discontinued, but you can still find statutes dotting the city. This Lucy nurse stands sentry outside the St. Paul Robert Street Red Cross Clinic.

The sister store of Cheapo Discs is Applause! Located directly across Snelling Avenue from Cheapo, Applause carries classical, bossa nova, jazz, blues and a variety of international artists. The sales people are knowledgable and friendly. Shawn picked up Herb Alberts Whipped Cream & Other Delights; Re-wipped and we are enjoying it thoroughly.
