Jim Henson-Imagination Unlimited Exhibit at COSI

We went to COSI- Center of Science and Industry in Downtown Columbus Ohio and saw the exhibit Jim Henson  Imagination Unlimited 

I couldn’t  believe The Muppet Show started in 1976,  Where does the time go? I remembered my son Mark had Ernie bedsheets in 1978.

Still in the COSI Progress exhibit.  Last week we had a nice day trip to downtown Columbus, driving around the city to check out Laura and James wedding venue, reception and the hotel where we’ll be staying.  When we went through the Columbus Science and Industry center the kids showed me their favorite room.  There is a vintage soda fountain and in one corner the jukebox and the other corner a pinball machine which you can play if you have a dime.
