People from the Science Museum of Minnesota were back this week to correct a problem with the mural behind our dig site. The original mural had separated along some of the seams. We'd discussed different solutions, but finally decided it was best just to replace the entire mural. The application this time is a little different, the adhesive and print medium are a little different too, so we're thinking there won't be any further issues. No one expected problems in the first place, but sometimes things happen for no discernable reason. Gremlins.
Anyway, here are some photos of the gremlins--oh, strike that, I mean "guys"--at work.
We're smart-alecky, so this is what we have to say about the trio from Minnesota. There's Dale, not pictured, who we call, "He of the Fabulous Hair." He's like a short-locked elf king from the Lord of the Rings or something.
Then there's Tim M#$%^, whose last name rhymes with "Costco." Other than the name, he's a nice guy. But that name, really, it's just a string of consonants!
And of course Steve, who is very tall. Steve is also personable, inquisitive, blah blah blah, did we mention he's tall? And that brings out a mean streak in us. Whenever we encounter tall people, our first impulse is to ask if they played basketball in school. Because, whether or not they did, we think they probably get asked that a lot, and it must be aggravating. Which spurs our dark impulse....
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going on at the museum.
