Oh, my, the butterfly is great--almost erotic in an insect sort of way. :) Hope you had a great time.

Hot Rocks said...

Very nice pics! You should have mentioned you were in my neck of the woods....we could have met up for coffee. Happy belated anniversary!

Such wonders, Cat! Such adventures! I have a set of wheels, now, and I think that I'm going to break out at any moment, now. Who cares if I can't afford gas to get back?! wheee heee heee heeeeeee! =D

My maiden name is 'Nielsen' - my grandma's maiden name was 'Nielsen'. (You have to think about that for a moment.) Whenever she filled out a form with her maiden name, the pert woman behind the desk would say, 'no, Dearie! Your maaaaaideeen name!' and she's have to explain that iiiiiis my maiden name. Everyone in Denmark is named Andersen or Christiansen or Nielsen. =D The museum sounds very fun!
