A Perfect End. . . .

A perfect end to a perfect week with grandson Tynan Matthews. Even the heavens put on a farewell show his last night in Heath.

The weather has been tropical with storms almost every day. Will we ever be able to mow the lawn again?

Happily it doesn’t take good weather to have a good time.

We went to Mass MoCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) and saw lots of Badlands exhibits about the depredations of Man and Nature of the landscape, but this exhibit by Vaughn Bell is titled Personal Home Biospheres. They are natural environments in a plexiglass dome that you can put your head inside. Little stools are provided for young people. Tynan said they smelled really good inside.

After we enjoyed lots of Art and supported Mass MoCA by buying a big fancy chocolate bar, we were off to the Heritage Park where they have exhibits all about the Hoosac Tunnel, a 5 mile railroad tunnel straight through Hoosac Mountain. It was finished in 1877. Some people in our area used to take the train from Charlemont, through the tunnel, to North Adams to go to high school. Ty and the Major really liked the model of the tunnel and its entry into North Adams.

Tynan returns to his house today, but he’ll be back with Everyone for the Heath Fair!
