We were there during Whitney Houston's funeral/homegoing. Here we are roaming the streets, talking about it.
We went to the Grand Ole Opry. As we were waiting before the show, a woman came up to us and asked if we would take a picture with her and her granddaughter's Flat Emily doll! Is that a coincidence or what? We got some photos of Flat Emily and Flat Laura together. The were instant friends. Don't they look so happy together?
The Opry is a live broadcast radio show. There are a bunch of performers each night, each doing one or two songs. Some of them were pretty cheesy (think names rhinestoned on guitar straps). But it was so so so much fun! I would go again in a heartbeat.
The tour included a couple of videos. Instead of watching the videos, I took pictures of my friends watching them. I can watch videos any day. But I can only take pictures of this crew once in a great while.

The best is that it's next to a DVD of season 2 of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team that I bought from some random lady on the internet. Hip, hip, hooray for cats, dogs, and (most of all) cheerleaders!

The main library is going to be completely rebuilt, but before the old building was demolished, people took advantage of the huge empty building and held an event called Bookless last weekend. Tons of artists had installations-- I even got to help a friend build hers, out of catalog cards and microfiche. Karl and I went to check out the event during the day. It was basically the most awesome thing ever in the world.
At the Ask the Oracle station, we wrote questions on catalog cards...
sent the cards through the pneumatic tube system...
and someone downstairs wrote an answer and sent it back up! I won't tell you what my question was, but the answer was, "How much?" which was the perfect answer. Thank goodness those tubes got a last hurrah!
