(Please stand by, we will return to our regular scheduled tatting shortly....)
We went to The Tank Museum! They got tanks!
Also artillery pieces, rifles, ammunition, medals, uniforms, a helicopter, vintage VWs, bayonets, helmets, Martian spacecraft, more tanks, military bicycles, anti-aircraft missile, an armored car, commemorative pillow cases, the shuttle craft Galileo, cavalry gear, historic photographs, toy tanks, vintage uniforms for sale, gun turrets, portraits, a little submarine, flags, a howitzer, a velociraptor, tools, and some more tanks.
Seriously, though, anyone like my DH, who is interested in this, would find the extensive collection at the American Armoured Foundation Inc.'s Tank & Ordnance War Memorial Museum quite impressive.
As an innocent bystander, I was able to keep myself amused, as with this delightfully inexplicable display.
In the rooms with uniforms on mannequins, I whispered, "As soon as we turn our backs, they come alive and eat our brains, right?"
And what's not to love in a place with life size cutouts of Elvis?
I'm just being silly; it really is very impressive. Please do not misconstrue my weak attempt at humor to indicate any lack of respect for our armed forces.
Isabel's Place - These butterflies are less subtle than the one I gave up on, but boldness has its own beauty! Isabel's place mat is now done and ready to be posted off...
