Cheaper Than Therapy

busy busy week
kids were off yesterday
so we took a field trip
The American Museum of Natural History

some day I'll tell you about
the speeding ticket
the fight with the stupid Metro North ticket machine
and how I paid ninety seven dollars

I hate machines

I could also tell you about the gypsy cab driver
that kept insisting that the
Metropolitan Museum of Art
was the
hey, Mustapha Lo,

your gypsy cab yelling
no art museum!
we want

but since this is supposed to be a post of few words
and tale telling pictures

let's tell the tale...

The American Museum of Natural History
79th and Central Park West

awesome architecture

I've come with my own Extreme Mammals

prehistoric giant tortoise

even though this is how I felt
when I woke up yesterday...

and the bugs

and the beetles

and more bugs
ever read The Spiderwick Chronicles?

and had a great time in N.Y.C.

sorry so many words came out
it's been a long time


  1. Ninety Seven Dollars for train tickets?????

    Holy Cow!!

    Looks like you had a great time though. Your kids are just adorable. Your daughters eyes draw me in every single time. She has the best eyes ever.

  2. I need to visit NYC. I really do. I want to see dinosaurs. Bugs I can see right here. And do. All the time.
    But dinosaurs? Nah.
    Plus, I could meet you and your sister!
    Unless you want to come here and meet me. I'll show you my bugs. I promise.

  3. looks like you had a great time with your kids. Great family bonding.

  4. I like your extreme mammals the best.

  5. What a fantastic place to go! I really love composition of that first shot, especially--It's really great :)


so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
