You never know where I will end up in my quest of trying new things! I must admit that even I did not expect this one, but recently I had the opportunity to ride up in a cherry picker used by the utility companies. My blog inspiration book, Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book recommends, “Look –up” and that’s just what I did on this day.

Having an “unusual sense of humor” is a characteristic of a self-actualized person according to the psychologist, Maslow, and that is just what you need to enjoy a silly wax museum. It’s pure “cheesy” fun. My son and my friends did this in South Carolina as we searched the Hollywood Wax Museum for the most real looking figure and as we took a lot of ridiculous pictures.

I have had very little fishing experience. The few times that I went my son was very little and I only went if I had someone to put the worm on the hook. Last year, I fished in a man- made lake behind my girlfriend’s house (see day 46-Fishing ) and she put the worm on the hook. Looking for a new mother/son experience, I was willing to try deep sea fishing though I am plagued with motion sickness. So I took my motion sickness pill and we chartered a boat in South Carolina, for a “big fish adventure."

It is a known fact that I love museums (see blog Day 4 ). So to be in the midst of so many FREE Smithsonian Museums was my heaven on earth! On our 25,000 step day we perused two (2) history museums; The American History and Natural History, two (2) art museums; The National Gallery of Art and American Art & National Portrait Gallery and finally, the Air and Space Museum. Everyone was on museum overload except me. If it wasn’t for my foot cramps, my pounding legs, and my backache, I would have continued until they closed at 7.30 pm. This blog is about the two history museums.

I had a blog hiatus because I was walking (and I mean 25,000 steps of walking confirmed by my friends' techie watches), though Washington DC over the 4th of July weekend. I can’t think of a better way to “be patriotic,” as my blog inspiration, Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book, suggests, than to visit DC. I have not been to DC in over twenty five (25) years so seeing many of the monuments were new experiences and this time I went with new friends, thus experiencing a British perspective on the federal district.
