Thanks so much for that link . . . anything like that is a nostalgic walk through childhood for me. My father was an eccentric art historian (Piled Highn' Deep from Princeton even) whose area of specialty was Popular Art and Architecture. While all four kids were taken to plenty of stuffy museums, too, the greater purpose of every family vacation was to go to "20th century monuments" . . . fiberglass roadside attractions which my father was convinced functioned as modern day sculpture tributes to Science and Commercialism . . .he'd lecture about them with two huge screens and two projectors, and show images of Peter the Great beside his slides of the giant Paul Bunyan (near Klamath, CA), Thor (on a Cloud) next to Fred Flintstone (driving the Flintstonemobile) . . .stuff like that.

A parent who specialized in 20th century pop art and architecture? What an outstanding career choice... and how brilliantly clever, making a scholarly career out of visiting the Flintstones' Bedrock Village and the Trees of Mystery! I'll bet some of his lectures were fascinating... well, if you were in to that kind stuff, and if you weren't one of his kids. I wish I'd gone to the school he taught in.
