Greetings from the Summit!
Fourth of July weekend is upon us and business is picking up in the museum! The last couple of days have been cold, windy and in the fog, but we’ve still had plenty of visitors and once again sold lots of hats, gloves and sweatshirts.
On a typical day at the museum I get asked a ton of question like, “Where’s Marty?” Yesterday I was surprised when I got asked, “Where’s Nin?” by a little boy who couldn’t have been over five years old. Now for anyone who knows about the cats on the mountain, you know that Nin left the summit in 2007 and has since passed away. Now the boy was too young to explain that Nin has passed away so I tried to dodge the question by trying to tell him about Marty but he was so persistent. I asked him how he knew about Nin, and it turns out his grandmother reads him our book “Cat in the Clouds” which is about how Nin came to be on the summit. He was so dead set on meeting Nin that I had to make up an story that Nin was on a really long vacation in the valley… this was very humorous to the boy’s parents and gave me a laugh for the day.
Well that’s all for now! I have to get back to the museum to make sure we’re all stocked up for the holiday weekend! If you’re in the area make sure you stop by the museum and say Hi! And don’t forget to check out the new merchandise we’ve gotten (especially the MARTY magnets!). Have a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend everyone!
