Showing Barney around Continued Saturday afternoon

Boy, I think Sassy,  Bosch & Barney all got pretty tired out Saturday afternoon.  We continued our journey with a few of the great sites around here.  We first made a stop at Bass Pro Shop where Barney tried out sitting on a 4-wheeler.  He looked pretty good on that.

From Bass Pro Shops we went the 1st National Bank of Omaha’s Park downt town where they had some statues that Barney loved playing on.

From the 1st National Park we moved onto another park showing the settlers

 From the Settlers park we moved onto  “the Road to Omaha Statue”  Which is now at TD Ameritrade Park (Baseball diamond).  The statue was originally at Rosenblatt Stadium where the college world series was held up until about 2 years ago.  Then Omaha built a new stadium and moved the statue there.



the “Bridge to no where” as people around here call it.  Actual name is the Bob Kerry pedestrian bridge which is approx 2.5 miles long (its more but I don’t remember the exact amount).  It covers the Nebraska side of the Missouri River to the Iowa side of the Missouri river, so Barney & I made the treck across the bridge so he could say he was in 2 states at one time.

From the long hike across the river we decided we would take him to Lewis & Clark monument.  Where Lewis & Clark met with the Indian Council on the Bluffs.






From Lewis & Clark monument we made just 2 more stops.  The Lincoln monument (from when President Abraham Lincoln visited Council Bluffs)  and the Black Angel Monument for Ruth Anne Dodge.  The Black Angel is made from Brass.  Ms Dodge used to have an dreams about this angel who would visit her.  I will include a little picture about that monument also.

    Wait a sec. I’m confused. You had Barney on a high bridge with a big drop below, and he was even sitting near the railing, yet he came home with you? This is the Kill Barney Tour! You could have pitched him over!!!

    Oh well. There are more chances for you to kill him. Bosch can dig a deep hole. Sassy can put Barney under a car tire. I’m glad you’re all having fun, but you’re missing the point! Surely you aren’t letting him sleep in the house…are you? Did you lock up your knives?

      I couldn’t let Barney fall over in the river. I would have felt horrible and it was terrible windy. I was like please don’t fall, don’t fall the whole time he was sitting there. He has many more missions. 🙂

    What a nice tour you gave Barney. And Sassy looks great, always want to just wrap my arms around her and squeeze.

    Wow Barney, you got to see a part of the country we would love to visit. OK not now though, maybe during spring!

    I loved the way you looked on the sculptures, I think someone needs to make one of you and Sassy. You make a cute couple.
