Hi ho. Sebastian sneaking in here for a quick post before you-know-who takes over with photos from the show. I just wanted to show you a few pictures from one of the places we stopped at on the way up to the show.
I’m a big Muppets fan – especially Kermit, and when I heard there was a statue dedicated to Jim Henson close to where we were headed I suggested we make a stop to see it for ourselves. To be honest, I didn’t come up against much resistance so I think they must be fans too.
Here I am plunked right smack dab in the middle of a conversation between the amazing Jim Henson and his most famous green creation. (There’s nothing wrong with your computer screen – he’s not green here. He’s a statue.)
In this one, I was imagining that Jim was introducing me to Kermit as if we have been friends for a long time.
I’m including this one because I wanted to point out Kermit’s hand (?) resting gently on Jim’s arm. Ain’t that sweet?
Here’s the entire statue. Isn’t that cool? It was so worth the short detour, but of course, it wasn’t the only detour we took. It was just the only one I was in charge of.
Anyway, after a long day, I was ready for bed. I knew we needed to be ready for the teddy bear show the next day. Speaking of the show, I made sure lots of photos were taken and am off to insure they get sorted and posted here on bearbits for you to see. So please come back and check them out. It will help me keep my day job!
love & hugs,
