Lincoln, Nebraska

I stayed with JeanEileen in Lincoln, Nebraska. She's in her '80s and has taken on many surfers since joining in 2007. She's been living in the house since 1985. I had the whole attic to myself, with books of literature and some by Kurt Vonnegut and Orson Scott Card. She has three cats and makes excellent rice pudding. Her mother painted the dressing panel behind her in the picture.


I took a picture of this T-Rex standing outside the dinosaur museum at the University of Wyoming. It had pinecones in its mouth.

They also had the full skeleton of an apatosaurus. Brontosaurus doesn't exist. In 1903, a scientist made the discovery that the species named Brontosaurus was really an aparosaurus's body with a missing head.
