Tank Petting Zoo

While we waited to hear back on our house offer, we went to Costco. They had no fly swatters. We already tried Target. So we went first to have lunch at a kebab and pita place, opposite the World of Beer:

And then to Cantigny, which I found out is pronounced "Can-teeny", because it seemed appropriate for Memorial Day to go look at a place that had both tanks and poppies. First the tanks-- this was my favorite, a Korean War veteran that was not very "stealthy" but definitely styling:

There were tourists from Taiwan, and a wedding party:

There was a Children's Garden, and an awesome frog pond, with hundreds of tadpoles:

And of course poppies

Which you can also have as wallpaper here: Cantigny Poppies


  1. You can get a leather flyswatter from Orvis for only $52.50 - it's even monogrammed.

  2. I think that flyswatter is for show only.;) Good heavens! (So far we have been making do with the New Yorker.)
