The folks visited the Glore Psychiatric Museum on Saturday. Mama said it was actually quite disturbing. She said she got a little scared when they were on a floor of the hospital all alone and she heard some strange noises. She whispered to Dad that she heard it might be haunted. He just laughed but she was happy when they left that area and were with people again The museum shows the history of the hospital that was known as “State Lunatic Asylum No. 2.” The hospital opened in 1874 and closed in 1997.

The museum has a lot of exhibits showing the crafts that the patients made. Many of the patients were quite talented. The women who were said to be violent made very sweet blankets and other things for children. There are also displays showing treatments and devices that were used on patients. Mama found that part disturbing. She did not take photos of those items. There is also a morgue.
What is this photo? Is it a craft?
The price is $6 per person, but Mama had a buy one get one free coupon.
After they left the museum, they decided to eat lunch. They checked the GPS and it said there was a place called Crumbly Burger nearby. Mama figured it would "old fashioned" burgers. The place is small and was crowded. Guess what? The burgers are actually crumbly. BOL! Mama said it was really good. It had cheese, pickle and onions.
We had an order of bully sticks arrive last week. Mama surprised us with chicken feet. Yep, chicken feet. We know some greys eat them raw. I really didn't care for them. Scout thought they were good though. Mama clipped the nails for us.
We apologize for any typos. The W, V, H are among the letters that our keyboard no longer likes. We try to proof it, but typos still get through. Mama says besides needing a new computer, she needs new glasses. BOL!
