Minnesota was a terrific place to go. Amazing places to get together. Terrific people to meet. Fun to be had. Oh, and spam.
You read that right. SPAM.
After an amazing meal at Jax Café and a Drambuie nightcap in Minneapolis Thursday night, Friday was reserved to tooling around the countryside and taking pictures, shopping and finding things to get into on our way to Duluth to meet Kim and her fabbo family.
The first thing we did was let GPS get us off the beaten path to look at the pretty rocks.
Although, to be fair, some of the rock farmers we not so sure letting the GPS let us find them was high on their agenda.
Next we stopped for shopping (results may or may not be revealed on another post) and headed to Austin. No, not Texas. Both of us have been there (often). Austin, Minnesota. What do you think is in Austin, Minnesota?
Can you imagine the Wombies’ excitement? A museum dedicated to one of their major food groups. Bruno wanted to ride the hogs.
Claret fussed at him to get down because she had already seen the street cart and did not want to miss it.
I had to put the kibosh on the double order of 100 SPAM burgers because we had an entire century of SPAM history to discover. As soon as we got inside, they ran over to Spammy and the attendant took our picture.
Only from this perspective could they see the wall of SPAM we walked beneath to enter the museum. 3,650 cans of SPAM. Enough for ten cans per day for a whole year. Bruno casually asked if we could have one at home.
I have to develop the rest of the film to show you all the other things the Wombies discovered in the SPAM Museum. They give it a definite four thumbs up.
If you have not been over to Val’s Tilted Tiara to see some of the other pictures from our Minnesota adventure, drop by and say hello. We have loads more to share about the trip and the walk.
If you have not been to Wombania, stop by and see if adoption is the right thing for you!
Have you ever eaten SPAM or been to the SPAM Museum? What is there about SPAM which makes it endure? (And no, I am not talking about the Twinkie way.)
