Lunch in Buffalo

Yesterday I took a ride to meet my friend Patricia for lunch. I drove from Rochester to Buffalo, she drove from Erie, PA to Buffalo, and we met up at Cracker Barrel which is a very nice place for lunch. (They have fried okra...)

It was a beautiful day, a nice lunch, and a wonderful meeting. Since I had all afternoon, and she would be meeting her brother later, we took a little stroll through a nearby Salvation Army Store and a walk about the incredible sculptures outside The Garden Place Hotel just off Thu-way Exit 49 near the Buffalo Airport. Wow! Pretty impressive.

I loved "Lunch on Top of a Skyscraper" as much as I loved the statues of the children playing and took a bazillion pictures. (Please forgive another rash of photos.)

One of the residents at the nursing home where I sit was a former steel worker. I'll have to ask his wife if he ever ate lunch on top of a skyscraper.


Loved the boots, especially the pair with holes in the bottom.


Looks like a game of Follow the Leader...


 Love the detail!


Giving little sister a boost, I think. Reminds me of when we would pick up our own baby sister.
I hope he doesn't drop her.


 Toy airplane. Remember when all the noise and motion came from us? No mechanical parts or batteries?


Even though they're all metal and fiberglass, these kids were having a great time. Almost makes me want to go play in the woods. Okay, it really does.

  1. I've been by these sculptures, but have never stopped, should do something about that.

    1. You can't help if you're under the weather. Maybe we'll do it again sometime.

  3. I always thought the photograph entitled Lunch atop a Skyscraper was intriguing.

  4. I'm looking to see how it compares to the photo. I just don't remember the bird.

    1. I think he's just an add on at the end. Not really part of the "Lunchtime" sculpture.
