penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

Every year Phil and Angie take a vacation to someplace fun. They almost always end up going to someplace unusual. This year they went to, as Angie put it "Exotic Cleveland, Ohio", whatever that means.

See you later!

Whenever we would tell someone that we were going to Cleveland,
we invariably got the same reaction... why?

Well, here is why!

In 1983, Warner Bros. released a movie called "A Christmas Story",
which took place in Hohman, Indiana,
but was shot in Cleveland, Ohio. This is THE Christmas Story house!

Time for Lil Orphan Annie.
Mom's room.
Drink more Ovaltine?
The essay.
A kitchen sideboard..
with the best ginger ale in the country!
Turkey time!
Many villians were bested here with the help of the Red Ryder BB Gun!
The lamp keeps a silent vigile for Ralphie.

Oh yeah.. we also visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
As disappointed as we were, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum isn't picture friendly anyway, so we wouldn't have been able to shoot much. It would have been nice to know in advance though.
