The Best Laid Plans

The plan was to pick The Eldest up at her hotel around 11:30 am, Sunday. Since we were so close to the Museum of Science, we would head over to view The Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit 

Since it was a holiday weekend, we made good time on The Pike and got into the city in under an hour. Usually, it can take an hour and a quarter to two hours depending on time of day and traffic. The Eldest was waiting for us outside the hotel. We headed across town to the museum, and our good timing and plans came to a screeching halt.

The museum parking garage was full. Two lanes of traffic were backed up trying to make the left hand turn to the alternate parking lot at the Galleria Mall. I was hoping Anime convention goers, OneRun runners and spectators (Sat) would head over to the MFA for their Free Memorial Day Community Weekend, but looked like they had the same plans we did. "The best laid plans of mice and men, gang aft aglee."

Himself has Fridays off during the Summer so we'll try again. Did you get to do what you wanted to do this weekend?


  1. Dang. Hope you get there soon. Sorry I haven't been around. The HH had surgery so I've spent most of my time at the hospital. Enjoy the rest of the day.

  2. You definitely have to go see the scrolls! The heck with the crowds, keep trying! They are worth the braving the multitude!

    1. The multitudes aren't the problem, Robin. Finding parking that won't cost an arm, leg, and first born is.

    2. Unexpected bus ride to a 1943 re enactment display one day and Pirates Day the next, both totally unplanned!
