the barnes

17 Oct

We reserved our tickets over a week in advance–that’s serious planning for us.  We arrived early.  We stayed until they kicked us out.  The Barnes Foundation delivered.


Who knew that the development of a silver nitrate antiseptic, previously used to prevent gonorrheal blindness in newborns, would foster such a staggering collection!  Can I get a “woot!” for all the physician-scientists who have a love of art?

As we left, John sighed: “That was magnificent!  Okay, you can go into labor any time now.”

    …Your husband’s labor comment seems a little spooky now and the very next post showed a baby girl! 🙂

      Yes, indeed! Very rarely do I actually schedule posts ahead of time like this…it was NOT written less than an hour post-delivery 🙂 Thanks so much for the comment!
