Out and about and a couple of oddities

Here are my photo-day-shots from Week #23 of 2017. We went to the theater, I played golf, and then we went north and we went south, and went to the theater again.

(6/6/17) “Backside” of the Guthrie Theater catches the early evening light.  We saw “Refugia” — a mostly excellent and thought-provoking play.

(6/7/17) This is one of the oddities of the week — a tree at the University of Minnesota/Les Bolstad Golf Course entirely covered by . . . not sure what, but it’s like cobwebs or something.  Anybody know what this is?  It would make a great Halloween tree.

(6/8/17) We headed north for the day, to the town of Oklee, Minnesota, for a Frette family funeral.  This is Karen’s cousin Lowell walking with his mom, Karen’s Aunt Myrtle.

(6/9/17) After heading north for a day, we turned the car around and drove south to Lanesboro for some biking, two plays, and good dining and conversation with friends Judy and Craig.

(6/10/17) The Rushford Depot Historical Museum along the Root River bike trail has a lot of cool old stuff, including an upstairs full of creepy dolls and mannequins.

 

Trying to stay a month behind

Here are my photo-a-day pictures from a little over a month ago (Week #22 of 2017, if you’re keeping score at home.)

(5/30/17) Graydon hits a wedge over the infamous tree on the short 4th hole at Keller Golf Course in St. Paul. Roger and Jerry prepare to comment.

(6/1/17) June starts with breakfast at the Finnish Bistro in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood of St. Paul. Both the restaurant and the neighborhood are hidden treasures. (In case you’re wondering, all of the food visible in this photo was consumed on the premises — and yes, animals were harmed in the making of my meal.)

(6/2/17) No it’s not a barn. Yes, it looks a lot better now.

(6/3/17) We can grow Hibiscus plants in Minnesota, too! (for about 5 months and then we kill ’em.)
