TEDDY ROSALIE NEEDS TO GROW TALLER SO SHE’D BE EASIER TO PHOTOGRAPH!

I’m bored!

Just like any other dependent, Teddy Rosalie hates chilling out at home on a nice summer day, but today was too hot (90° F) for me to go to a park.

I considered taking her to the Albright Knox Art Gallery, but Teddy Rosalie thought it would be foolish to waste admission cost and parking on artists inferior to me.

Teddy Rosalie is my biggest, albeit somewhat misguided, supporter.

Also, the Albright Knox does not allow photography by visitors inside the building, and we all know what a ham Teddy Rosalie is.

Right next to Albright Knox is the Buffalo History Museum – lower admission (especially if you’re old like me!), free parking, photos allowed so long as you don’t use a flash – and after driving past it twice a day for the last 17-1/2 years, I figured it was time to visit.

What a great choice!

Teddy Rosalie loves to climb on things.

TEDDY ROSALIE WANTED ME TO CLIMB UP AND PUT HER ON THE BACK OF THAT STATUE, BUT I SAID NO WAY

And Teddy Rosalie loves sliding down staircase railings.

Some of the exhibits made her just a bit nervous, I don’t know why.

WHY DOES THIS MAKE ME THINK OF NOT CM?

But then we found the model train exhibit – everyone loves that!

MODEL TRAIN EXHIBIT OPERATED BY ED KOWAL, OF PARKSIDE SCALE MODELS, BUFFALO, NY

The operator of the model train exhibit, Ed Kowal (see credit under photo), was kind enough to stop the train so Teddy Rosalie could get a really good look (and I could get a better photo).  Thank you, Ed!

By now, Teddy Rosalie was running out of steam and wanting a nap.  Good thing I was able to stop her from climbing into the traveling trunk exhibit.

My favorite exhibit, however, was the wall where visitors left notes saying why they had come.  I was tempted to leave a note with the URL for this website, but thought the museum management might object to free advertising.  There were two notes, however, which I found especially interesting:

I BELIEVE SHE MOVED IN NEXT TO ME

I SURE HOPE THEY FOUND EACH OTHER

Before heading back to the car, Teddy Rosalie and I found a nice bench outside next to the Japanese garden.  Just what we both needed to relax for a few minutes.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little view into one of Buffalo, New York’s best kept secrets.  If you’re ever in town, I’ll be glad to take you there.

  1. Give Teddy R. a hug for me. She can come visit my bears any time. We also have trains. And steam engines. And dolls. And stuff.

    Gorgeous CM – and Teddy Rosalie is very photogenic (surprisingly I could get the scale from her being in the picture and it enhanced the understanding).

    • Generally, your part of the world is so much prettier, but we have a few good spots here and there. I would love someday to bring Teddy Rosalie over to your place – maybe when I win the lottery.

    You have reminded me how few places I’ve actually visited in the past few years. I LOVE your creativity, CM, and Teddy? she is the coolest! I laughed out loud at what two people wrote why they moved here. LOL Love the humor throughout this post and I thank you for giving me some laughs. Glad you got out to do some sightseeing. Perhaps we may want to think about doing something indoors versus outside. It is just SO hot!!! ❤
