|Down by the riverside|
On the way, we drove down the west side of the Susquehanna River to see the high water. At West Fairview, we parked and walked down to Front Street and found it already partially covered.
The big attraction at the museum was a mastodon discovered in 1968 in Monroe County and just recently reassembled in the snazzy new exhibit. We also visited the general exhibits, and the kids were truly interested in everything we saw. If you have not been to the museum with your kids yet, give it a try. It is open free of charge on the third Saturday each month.
|In search of post cards|
Jesse was looking for cards of Progress, the area where he is a relatively new resident, but alas, found only one card with the word Progress on it, but it was a view that was not recognizable. It might have been Walnut Street, the main drag through that area. Anyway, it was $35.00. So no sale!
Fortunately, the flood predicted in the Shipoke area did not materialize, and friends from church who live there escaped yet another watery disruption.

Chloe liked the stage coach and log road.
Everyone checks out the big Pennsylvania map outside.
After the post card show, I headed to Home Depot.
On the way, the Box saw himself in the chrome on the car ahead.
At church, our musician Eric played the harpsicord.
