Description of Subject Matter: The Muppets Take American History
November 12, 2020 – Indefinitely
In this series of special pop-up displays, Muppets from the collection will be appearing in unexpected places in some of our best-loved exhibitions, inviting visitors to look at history through a fun new lens. Look for Fozzie Bear to debut within America on the Move and Boober from Fraggle Rock near the Food exhibition. Muppets and locations will change 2-3 times per year.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com

2022 photos: Another year begins. Here's hoping we've finally learned something from the Trump and COVID-19 pandemics. I continue to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras for most things but the camera, which came out a decade ago, is no longer repairable so when the last of my four XS-1s break, I'll have to figure out a comparable camera to use instead.
This website had its 20th anniversary in August, 2022.
Trips this year:
(February) a visit to see Dad and Dixie in Asheville, NC with some other members of my family, and
(July) a trip out west for the return of San Diego Comic-Con.
