The Curse of the Pharaohs

Miniature Entrails Coffin





Dear Friends,

I attended the King Tut exhibit last weekend at the Science Museum in St. Paul Minnesota.   It did not disappoint.  Those Pharaohs sure did lived large in ancient times just like our celebrities do today except, of course, for the incest and murder.  They adorned their bodies in gold and heavy eye make-up just like Kim Kardashshian, and took a multitude of pictures of themselves in the form of carved stone busts.

The crowds were light and the day was bright and the show was beautiful and well thought out. Afterwards we went to the Happy Gnome for dinner but the curse of the Pharaohs was upon us by then. Pay-back I think for leering at the ancient belongings of people long gone from this earth.  They cursed us with a nightmare of horrible food that was so bad it would've passed as the mummified entrails of the Pharaohs.









At Least Someone Was Happy and Content







Here's what we had for dinner The Happy Gnome in St. Paul.  It's a friendly pub that thinks it's a restaurant with all the whistles and bells and the required million plus craft beers that more or less taste  like crap.  On the plus side they did had all of the correct glassware for the appropriate beer instead of pouring everything in sight into the common pint glass.

A picture tells a thousand stories or in this case a thousand indigestion pills.

Who ever said you can't go gnome again was right.
