Our Maryland Weekend And A New Mummy

My wife Diane and I visited Maryland this weekend to help celebrate my niece Lauren getting her BA.

Maryland was a nice change from New York! The people seem to be more laid back than New Yorkers.

Even when driving. I think I heard a car horn blown three times the whole weekend. And I didn't see one middle finger salute given!

Unfortunately Edgar Allan Poe's house was closed during our visit. Likewise the Maryland Science Center.

We did get to see the Maryland National Aquarium which was cool! They had an exhibit you could walk through with waterfalls and exotic birds flying overhead.

This photo is Diane and I outside with part of the aquarium in the background.

Docked nearby was the USS Constellation

Since getting home here to Long Island it has been nothing but heavy winds and rain. So much for fishing on the last couple days of our vacation!

I had finished this mummy before I left but hadn't had the opportunity to upload pictures of it. I figured I'd share some photos of it now.

It measures 15" high with a foam rubber/cotton wrapped body with head and hands sculpted of Apoxie clay. It is covered in gauze and mounted on a sand covered wood base.


  1. Awesome Mummy Brian! I love it!!

  2. Sounds as though you have had a lovely time, and I love your mummy. Thanks for sharing. xxx

  4. Ooooo! Love the mummy! He's amazing!

    Glad you had a good trip, sorry about the rain!

  5. Ah...a week-end sounds so much fun! Your mummy reminds me of some of the folks in the original 'Night of the Living Dead' least how I remember them.
    Great piece!
