WAC stands for Women’s Adventure Club, but maybe it should be called “Women’s Airing-out Club”. It’s not like we do mountain climbing or sky diving or the like. We just like to get out and try something new with our sisters and sister-friends.

Remember in January, when I forgot to bring a camera? In February, I brought a camera, and forgot to take a single picture.

I planned the February outing and surprised the women with a Psychic and Healing Symposium. Did you know you can have your toes read by a psychic? Yes, yes you can.

None of us had our toes read, but my BFF “C” had her tattoo read. She has a dragonfly on her ankle, and just got a lot of yadda, yadda. It was a free reading. I guess you get what you pay for.

No.2 Sis got a free energy reading, though, and she felt the woman was quite insightful. No.1 Sis also got a free reading that she thought was right on.

I paid big bucks for an aura reading and the reader told me I had a golden aura. She told me over and over how happy I was, until she finally convinced me.

I don’t want to be too mocking, since I’ve had some really good readings over the years, and offer tarot readings for friends and family. Of course, I’m the real deal!

No.1 Sis planned our March outing and we went to the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis. I brought and used a camera!

Minneapolis used to be nicknamed The Mill City because it had the biggest flour mill in the country. We toured the self-guided museum, had a sample of  tasty baked goods in the test kitchen, and took the Flour Tower guided tour.

The Flour Tower had us seated in bleachers in the freight elevator. The elevator went up and down the eight floors of the mill, stopping for short films on the mill’s history, often narrated by actual mill workers.

The mill exploded in the 1800’s. Apparently, flour dust in the air is highly combustible. Who knew?

It was rebuilt a couple of years later, and finally closed down in the late 1960’s.

Below is a view from the eighth floor of the mill. The bridge is Stone Arch Bridge, a Minneapolis landmark.

No.2 Sis is planning is April’s “airing-out”. It’s sure to be fun!

Stay tuned…

p.s. I can’t figure out why there’s such a huge gap between the Bisquick photo and the text. Harrumph!
