I am partnering with Laffy Taffy to celebrate National Let’s Laugh Day. My thoughts and words are my own. My jokes are free and plentiful. The Last Laff They say that laughter is the best remedy. It’s not that I’m ailing, but I guess I just enjoy a good laugh. Considering that March 19th is […]
I was alone at my museum. Well, I wasn’t exactly alone, but my family wasn’t physically with me. In fact, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis was packed, as it should be, because it is an amazing place to take kids. I had an opportunity to go see the dinosaurs by myself if I wanted. Or […]
