Staff day at the Frick was quite possibly the coolest thing that I got to do all summer. I’m not kidding! Bowling on a per-mechanization bowling alley, attending art lectures on the restoration of the Diana sculpture (for starters), getting to check out the “new” vault (that is HUGE!!) and having the opportunity to take some fantastic pictures of the garden and koi pond. I hope you enjoy the slide show!

What a fantastic shot!! I’m so glad that I don’t have to wear a dress to go swimming.  No wonder ladies didn’t do much swimming.  You would drown in those things.  🙂

It reminds me of my favorite picture of my grandfather.  I like this picture so much because he was such a kind, strong and athletic man.  I like remembering him this way.  The two girls in the picture are my mother and her sister.  This was probably taken ca. 1953 in Michigan.
