Not something we see everyday in Omaha.
I'm sure the reindeer were fine with the weather. Did I mention it was freezing? Know what else you don't see everyday? Me, in a red wool coat. It took 40+ years but I think I'm finally over the trauma of that HBC red and black point blanket coat my mother made me wear year after bloody year (she bought it big) until I finally, "Lost" it. Those coats sell for a small fortune now, but I've never regretted binning it. Anyway, here I am in a red wool coat which is surely a sign of progress, no?
Saturday brought the start of the Olympic Curling trials in Omaha. We went down to Stinson park to check out the celebration.
Danny was keen to give it a try. He did manage to land his rock on the house (that sounds worse than it is). You wouldn't think of curling being an exciting spectator sport-but it is! The trials go all week and though we can watch online, we're planning to go and cheer people on in person. Tickets are quite inexpensive.
If curling isn't your sport you can always try bobsledding.
Just don't forget to rub noses with the snowmen for good luck.
Walking back we passed this under construction building. No idea what it will be home to, but it does seem unfortunate that it has windows that can't open. Ah well, I'm sure it will glimmer away in the sunlight like a glasshouse once completed. Think of what the air conditioning bills will be like!
There's a sports bar in the neighbourhood that caters to Cubs fans. Danny has a few years before he can go inside (drinking age is 21) so we took his photo instead. "Do something Cub" I told him.
"Okay, how about choking?!"
That's my boy, the smartass. Some fan.
Hope you're having a nice weekend. Stay warm (or cool if you're in the other hemisphere).
