Expensive FlutterbysBefore heading off to Oshkosh, Spring wanted to do something special and seeing how I live less than a mile from Butterfly World we decided to give the place a try.
I've been living next to Butterfly World for 10 years and I've never been there myself. So after lunch we headed on over to Butterfly World.
The place is currently being renovated so there's much construction going on. The main entrance is now on the side admist warning signs, exposed wiring and joists and conduits and sawdust. We snake our way around the exposed construction to the gift shop where you buy tickets into Butterfly World itself.
For US$13.50 per adult!
That's a bit more than we wanted to pay to see some crawling, flying insects so we made a quick tour around the giftshop (and it was your typical tourist trapish museumesque giftshop) and left.
The Standard Warentee Followup Questionaire, Part VEach time I've had the car worked on for the A/C, a day or two later, the auto manufacturer of my car calls up with a followup survey asking me a few questions about the service.
This was the fifth time they called.
I'm now starting to answer the questions with “Can I get back to you on that?”
Oshkosh or BustTonight is the night that Spring heads off to Oshkosh for AirVenture, a yearly convention of the aerospace industry. Greg got her tickets to attend, plus plane tickets. Spring is picking up Greg, then it's a three hour trip to Orlando to pick up their flight to Oshkosh. They'll be back sometime Sunday night or Monday morning.
And I'll spend the next few days catching up on stuff here.
