Glad the fight is over....


I'm thinking Obama and Romney are needing a rest, don't you? 

Well, I'M NEEDING A REST!!  

And I want to show you even more pictures from Scotland! (I'm one of those people who after I've come home from a big trip HAS to share her pictures)...

Here I am in the Kibble Palace in the Glasgow Botanical Gardens....

Here is the Monkey Puzzle Tree in the Botanical Gardens...

Here it is up close...
(It looked weirder in person.)

Here is the statue outside the Glasgow Museum of Modern Art...
Yes, the rider of that horse has a traffic cone on his head. 
That shows that the museum is of MODERN art.


Here are Bailey and Will inside the museum...
There was much weirder art than that but my camera didn't like it, I guess.

Here's the square downtown that is beautiful. 
What's the name of it, W&B?

Here's a new VERY interesting museum, the Riverside Museum...
It was by the River Clyde, but was NOT about the river, actually.
It was about transportation.

Here are some pics I took...
Those are on the wall... and they're not doll-size, as you can tell by the man in the bottom left-ish.

Here are bicycles way above us...


And you can guess what this is...


On a totally different note, here are two windows at the Religion Museum near the Glasgow Cathedral.  It think they're beautiful...


Well, you can see we saw a WIDE variety of wonder in Glasgow.

There's really so much more to show you and tell you, but I'll leave this post with a picture of a Sam and a young Brazilian!
We were walking along one afternoon and this young man asked if we could take his picture.  Sam said yes, and did. Then I asked where the young man was from. He said, "Brazil." Well, I had to grab him and hug him! We found out his name was Marcos and he'd been studying English in London, and was taking a three day trip by himself through Scotland. When we hugged him and started speaking our broken Portuguese (we lived in Brazil in the early '80's), well, I could tell he bonded with us, so I had to take that picture of him and Sam.
(It's a small world after all.)

This is all for now about Scotland.

I have other things to say about other things... but they can wait.

Have a great rest-of-the-week.
