Who knew?

What could it be?

Guess what this little building in Lincoln is?  A library?  A school?  A house with a really big address plaque?  No, sillies, it’s the …

Wowsers!

Ha!  In little ol’ Lincoln Nebraska!  I drive by it when I drop off Lloyd at choir practice on Sundays.  Someday I’ll actually go inside – it’s on my list of ‘Things to do when I can’t possibly think of something else to do’.   I don’t think they’ll welcome me, though.  One look at my ankles and they’ll know I’m an imposter.  “You can’t skate!  Get out of here!”

    Don’t wait too long. There was a used record store near my house that I kept telling myself I would go into some day. It closed. Now it’s a hip-hop recording studio.

    Maybe I should still visit. I could show them I have some fashizzle in my nizzle.

    And next, you can go to the “Germans from Russia” Museum, also located in Lincoln…and then perhaps the “Nebraska Softball Hall of Fame” in Fremont…your options are endless!

    You may be too young to remember the metal roller skates that I had as a kid that you put on over your shoes & had to tighten the the front with a key. Of course they never stayed on no matter how hard you tightened them and one would fly off (but still be attached to your ankle by the strap)when you were going really fast on the cement (there were no roller rinks, we skated around the neighborhood), and it’d be a___ over tin cups … cuts & scrapes galore, but did we stop? No! We got up and did it again. And we didn’t wear helmets or knee pads or elbow pads. We were tough!! And our childhoods made us strong … YEA!

    Lauren,
    You SHOULD check out the German’s from Russia Museum. The Hofmans were Germans living in Russia (Hofnungstahl, I believe).
