There are upsides and downsides of puppetry conventions. Glorious wonderful upsides like...too many puppet shows in one week you cannot see them all and puppetry exhibits that wow you down to your toes.
But the small insignificant list of downsides definitely includes the dorm accommodations. Seen here.
Here's a better picture of what is to come:
It's the puppetry store...still in process of being filled with stuff. I was standing at the door just now saying, "Open, open,open..."
We did go by the Ballard Institute & Museum of Puppetry on the way back from dinner and I have purchased books...I just can't help myself!
Check out this great poster that was there:
I just love it! Wish I could have purchased a copy with my Professor name on it!
