10 AM


Visited the baseball Hall of Fame. I spent 6 hours there and didn't see everything.

Interestingly, I don't recall seeing the words "steroid" or "PED" at all. OTOH, there was a major exhibit for Henry Aaron yet not a thing for Barry Bonds (except his name on the all-time home run list). The feats of other "tainted" performers were similarly noted with simple stats.

Most of my pictures (not posted yet) were of the plaques and artifacts of Dodgers and Angels, plus this year's inductees (Torre, Cox, LaRussa, Thomas, Glavine, Maddux).

5 PM


I had purchased a combo ticket (HOF and Fenimore Art Museum), so I went over to the Fenimore so as not to waste it. I got only an hour there. I had to skip the native American, Dorothea Lange, and Madame Butterfly exhibits. My main interest was in depictions of life in Cooperstown and of the Leatherstocking Tales, and I was disappointed that there wasn't more.

6 PM


As my mother would put it, Cooperstown "rolls up the sidewalks" quite early. Nothing is open after 5:00PM except a couple of restaurants. They tell me that it's more lively during the summer. I had a turkey and mashed potatoes dinner at the Cooperstown Diner, which looked like it would fit on a railroad car (long and skinny).
