16 June 1968 / Magnus Estate

I realized this morning that, at some point, I’m going to have to invent my own children’s museum. So today I thought of some materials I’m going to need and did some potential exhibit brainstorming.

This list is in no particular order, nor is it anywhere near complete.

Materials I know I already have on hand:
--2 tons of frozen hot dogs
--Rock tumbler (unused)

Materials I probably already have on hand but need to check.
--Chock Full of Nuts coffee cans
--A few miles of rope
--Concrete mix
--Bulk Scarves
--2 geysers
--A city bus
--Miniature village inhabited by enlightened mice (In this case, I know I have this, I just can’t for the life of me remember where I put it.)
--Bean bags
--The Enola Gay

Materials I know I don’t have:
--Wayne Newton voice samples

Exhibit ideas:
--Defending the Donkeys. Here, children will learn the art of self-defense as I did—in a pen full of angry donkeys. Note--add to the materials list: donkeys and release forms.
--Wolverine Theater … self-explanatory
--Kimonos of the World ride. (Theme by Herb Alpert)
--Mirror Smash! (note: I’m not sure what this would be, but the title sure grabs me)
--Brenda Can Shoot Anything!

Potential Staff:
--Myself, on Tuesdays and Fridays
--Brenda and that gun of hers. I can’t believe my luck in meeting her last week.
--Willie Mays?
