Washout in Baltimore

Yesterday Annette took a walk in the rain with Coda and me. We got a little exercise and just enough water to feel invigorated. It was a harbinger of things to come later.

We saw the Peabody Library in the afternoon. But, it was about the ONLY thing we saw in Baltimore. The Walters Art Museum was closed, unbeknownst to us. They close on Monday and Tuesday now. The Catholic Basilica was closed for renovations, but we were able to see the Crypts. The Enoch Pratt Free Library was open, as well as Poe's grave. Amanda and Annette saw several of the bathrooms in the few places that were open. (To be polite I'm not saying why.) Then, it started to pour rain so heavy that the windshield wipers made no difference on the car. We decided to get out of Dodge (Baltimore). We finished up the day with a tour of beautiful downtown Sykesville.

On a brighter note, we now have a tuba player in our ward! Amanda and Matt practiced for a number at the ward Fall Festival coming up this Saturday! They're going to be a surprise hit in the entertainment! Their rendition of the Veggietales Theme Song makes you smile so wide it hurts your lips!


  1. Even with everything being closed, it looks like you had a pretty full day.

  2. With a "tubist" (virtuoso tuba player) your band is now complete!
