Day Eight

The fountain at The Metal Museum. Designed by Doug Hendrickson - aka Dr. Iron.

Today is our last day at Coro Lake Elementary. Its been tons of fun. The kids are great and so are their projects. One of the girls asked me, "Are you from a farm?" I asked when she might think so and she said "You just look like you're from a farm." I'll take that as a compliment.

The sun is shining, the snow has melted and its feeling like springtime in Michigan. However, it is still winter in the Mid-South and folks around here are groaning like we do. Its all about what you're used to.

Time is flying by and I am worried I will not get enough of this place before it is time to leave. That's quite probable, as I am still struck with the magic and wonder of the Metal Museum, its Staff, its Mission and its Clients. Know that I am talking a lot of mental notes in order to bring that magic back to SmartShop and recreate it. Oh, yes, I know SmartShop has a magic all of its own, but its been running in short supply and we need another sprinkle or two of fairy dust to make it sparkle again.
