Museum, cave & park - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Today we went to the Museum Center at Union Station. It's a former train station (in an impressive dome of a building!) with a history/science museum downstairs. The coolest part of that is the Cave, a maze of dark twisty claustrophobic tunnels that open out onto big spaces with underground waterfalls and rivers. I got a couple of dramatic photos in there! Then we had butterscotch shakes.

Then we drove over to Eden Park and parked for a bit. It overlooks the Ohio River.

Now I'm tiiired. :}

Did you smell a wumpus or get eaten by a grue in that maze of twisty passages all alike?

Dear KT,

I suffer from the Butterscotch Shakes.

What should I do?

Your pal,

Strongbad. Erm... I mean... Timmo! I mean... make fun of your spelling and punctuation... I mean... answer them!

Dear Strong Timmo,

That's easy! Just drink some water. Then hold your breath and count to 1000. Oops, that's a typo. I meant 2000. Then, after you regain consciousness, take all those funny little green pieces of paper out of Daddy's wallet and send them to Soupy Sales, c/o The Kinky Turtle, c/o the Funny Farm, Chalfont. If that doesn't do the trick, um, try some sit-ups. Or sit-downs. Or carry-outs.

Sincerely truly,

The Strong KT-erson

Deja Vu

I have a Union Station in my city, Kansas City, and it sounds like the same exact layout. Old train station with Science City in it, and an underground jungle thing. How disappointing that everything is getting homogenized!
