Friday after he got home from work, Steve asked me to go to the Andy Warhol Museum, use our museum memberships. We always say we are going to go to one of the museums every month and although I went with the grandkids to the Carnegie Science Center twice recently and the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, he and I have not kept up with our plan. Four museums in one membership is a great deal but you have to utilize it! Tonight we were remembering going the night the Warhol opened in 1994. We had a beer and sat on the couch, a nice man offered to take our photo as he saw me struggle with a selfie attempt. We took a walk to the river after our visit.
