I said YES to the Dress then all communications went silent. I asked my long time friend Peter who lives in Buffalo to check it out for me and he looked two or three times and found nothing so he figured I had gone crazy. But that’s not a new theme of his – this is the same Peter who hates Trump (and also hated Hillary) and who has taken to regularly telling me Trump is going to take the country down the toilet.Before Trump, we pretty much agreed about most things in life but he, like many Trump haters, has gone to a dark place.
ANYWAY, I got an email this morning from the man who helped orchestrate the exhibit saying it’s open and ready for viewing, inside the building at The Prudential Guaranty Interpretive Center.
The building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975. The Guaranty Building represents the pinnacle of Sullivan’s design and marks the beginning of the uniquely American style of architecture that influenced the young Frank Lloyd Wright, who worked for Adler and Sullivan from 1888 to 1893.
The only conundrum of the trip there is Peter. Do I tell him we are coming and would love to see him but please no politics? Do I sneak into town and not tell him we are there? We’ll just go up one morning and come back the next afternoon – one night stay at a downtown hotel.
I can’t imagine being in Buffalo and not seeing this dear old friend who I’ve known since the 1970s but I gotta say his lectures are tiring. I didn’t respond to the last email. Previously I’d answer, saying things like let’s agree to disagree or to each his own. Now I just click delete.
I think we’ll head up there one day next week – it all depends on who can care for Dawg and the house.
Happy Friday. Happy weekend, if there is such a thing without football. There’s golf! And tennis!
