Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

While in Cleveland for Katie’s wedding, I was able to take Doug to the Rock Hall – he hadn’t really been before and it’s one of my favorite places ever. Here are some pics.

Katie and I spent an afternoon at the Cleveland Museum of Art – it was free and a really nice museum with a great cafeteria! They had a lot of really old textiles! This is from Egypt and is 1000 years old! So is this! I have lots more pics of the textiles and of the captions – and of … Continue Reading →

So when I visited Katie in Cleveland, we went to the Rock Hall again. I think I could just camp out permanently at that place. There is always so much to see – and they do change the exhibits up so while some things were the same (and I tried to mostly not photograph the same things I did last … Continue Reading →

Doug had a conference in Cleveland so I went with him to visit Katie. Katie and I did the Rock Hall, Melt, Squire’s castle, the duck pond, Granite City, and the art museum…all in 3 days!

Saturday morning we hit Starbucks for breakfast, detoured through downtown and then hit the Rock Hall. Where we were pleasantly surprised that they now allow photos! (They didn’t last time we were there. And last time we were there, the Beatle display was under construction, so no Pepper suit.) Johnny Cash’s tour bus: Guitars! Woo!

So Friday night we went to a sports bar, Panini’s to meet up with … Continue Reading →


I just got back from an *awesome* weekend in Cleveland, where amaz0n_princess and I visited katie_beatlefan. The weekend didn’t start well. Doug dropped me off at the airport, I walked inside, and there was a HUGE security line. I could also see the gates were down. Security was closed. I tried the other side, where the line was shorter, but … Continue Reading →
