Whew!  Had to brush off the cobwebs and do some dusting just to get back into this thread...

I "get" to do a bit of travel from time to time for various reasons, but in a couple of weeks I am gonna be within short driving distance and try to make it by the Guthrie Center!   Should be interesting - almost a pilgrimage of sorts.  And they have a new roof, too!!  Also gonna try to eat at the restaurant!!   Different name, same location.

Not the town in Iowa....

Do you not live in Tulsa and you're travelling here and get to visit the Guthrie Center? I don't know what you mean that they have a new roof and restaurant. The Woody Guthrie Center is just a museum without a rooftop access for the public and no restaurant.

I live in Tulsa - and haven't had the chance to get to the local one yet, which is really irksome.  Life gets in the way sometimes.  And travel will give me the chance to get to the original Guthrie Center first....go figure.  And they serve free lunch every Wednesday!!   Strange how it works out sometimes.  Also the scene of one of my favorite movies...  Just love Officer Obie!!

As for the restaurant, well just walk right in, it's around the back...just a half a mile from the railroad track!

Ok, this post was about the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa so I didn't realize you were referring to another one elsewhere. That is neat there's another one. That looks and sounds nice.

Most closely related I could find - with a good opportunity to tie in to an older version related not just by topic, but by blood (family). 

Was kind of wondering if anyone would get the references before I had to be so explicit, but it just tells me the relatively younger age of many here.  At least younger than me...

I am away 5 - sometimes 6 - days a week - and not even a truck driver anymore!  Typical "home time" leaves about 12 - 14 hours of actual time per week to do all the stuff related to home ownership, car maintenance, and personal life.  Part of the "horde" - grandkids - converged last week for a few days and I only got 2 days with them!  I haven't even been able to get to Decopolis since before Christmas and I love going in there to just walk around and look!  This weekend doesn't look much better...
