We rolled into Little Rock just in time to have dinner with Marvin's Georgia Tech Roommate, Jack and his wife Camille. We enjoyed an Italian Feast at Bruno's Little Italy.
Two helluva an engineers!!
Wednesday morning was my visit with blog reader, Mary, at The Shepherd's Needle. I am saving that for Saturday Stitching. But I must say, if Mary lived in Decatur we would be good friends I am sure. Mary had recommended Izzys for lunch so we took her advice and she was not wrong. It was a delicious meal.
We spent the afternoon at the Bill Clinton Presidential Library. And let me just say, neither Marvin or I are Bill or Hillary fans but we love history and we enjoyed the tour. Our tour director was Jinke and she was so knowledgeable and entertaining.
The library sits on a 30 acre plot of land donated by the town of Little Rock. It was in the worst part of town and much toxic dirt had to be removed before building could begin. However, the town of Little Rock knew that placing the presidential library there would force the area to change from undesirable to desirable. And for the most part, it has done so.
A new presidential limousine was ordered for President Bush so this one came to live in Little Rock.
Of course my favorite area was Christmas at the White House. This piece of glass was a portion of one tree that was created for New Years Eve 1999. Bill Clinton saw in a new millennium. There were two trees and they were so tall that only a portion could be displayed here. It was beautiful.
Handwork on display...
And take a look at this ballet slipper.
Now Marvin and I are thinking we ought to visit all the Presidential libraries.:)
