Saturday, May 12, 2012

Started the day with a call from the Secretary of my Elks Lodge stating that my dues notices had been returned undelivered.  Oops, my dues were unpaid.  Sent them off quickly – we might need an Elks Lodge to stay overnight in this summer.

Then we drove to Cooperstown, NY to visit two museums – the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Farmers Museum.  First we have a picture of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum along with a picture of Abner Doubleday, the founder of the game.IMG_0619IMG_0621a

Inside, there was a short movie about baseball, a “cow” that used to be on the streets of NYC, and of course the room with all of the “Hall of Fame” plaques.IMG_0622IMG_0624IMG_0626

The Farmers Museum has a collection of buildings from the early NYS 1800s with docents to explain rural NY life. These pictures were taken from the balcony of the Bump Tavern.  IMG_0627IMG_0628
