"What's in a name? That which we call a spoon by any other name would still scoop." Okay, poor attempt at #Shakespeare . But does anyone collect #souvenirspoons ? This #museumcollection item is sterling silver souvenir spoon from the original Glen Echo Chautauqua and it's on display in the ranger station at #glenechopark . #Chautauqua #spoonsarecool
Even park rangers love riding the carousel here @glenechopark and Ranger Smiley (yes, that's her real last name) provides photographic proof! #carouselselfie #dentzelcarousel #glenechopark
