So… this Friday I will knock off the FIRST thing on the Bucket List. Oh yes I will.
Although, technically it’s not a free day for everyone, but it’s free for us.
Visitors of Chicago’s Field Museum this Friday, September 18, will get a rare treat as a paleontologist will conduct a thorough cleaning of Sue, the 67-million-year-old T. rex. This big clean up with take place in the main hall starting at 9 am. I hear that it will all be by feather duster- as her old bones require meticulous care.
And on Friday, September 25- which, how fun is also Elephant Appreciation Day!- the Museum’s two huge, fighting African elephants will be vacuumed from head-to-toe. The elephants have been on display since 1909. They were collected and mounted by Carl E. Akeley, who also revolutionized the art of taxidermy.
Grayson and I are most excited to head up there Friday morning for the event!
