#1 says to tell you that she loves Chihuly's work, and has several books about it. She has seen two big outdoor exhibitions, one at Chicago's Botanical Gardens and the other at Kew Gardens near London. She wishes she could afford even a small piece!

Dearest Eastside Cats,
In April of 1983 when I came for the first time to this great country, I did visit The Henry Ford, Dearborn Michigan Museum!
Those old cat carriers are interesting to see.

Museums sure are fun. We don't have any interesting ones around here, we have some but they are just okay.

Those are very interesting. Mum has been to the British Museum in London and also the National Gallery quite a few times. Not recently though.

Mummy has told Us about several interesting Mew-seum's She has visited. One of her favourites was the Cat Museum in Kotor, Montenegro.

I thought the boat was a salad at first. And I have an old cat-carrier, made of wood and steel mesh in the window. I always thought it home-made, but maybe it's not...

Thank you for sharing these awesome photos. My husband and I both grew up not far from Alliance, Ohio. We'll have to visit that museum. And if you ever travel Southwest Ohio again, please let me know as I'd love meeting you. We live pretty close to the Air Force Museum, among other interesting places. Be well!
