Private Tour

We got a private tour. That is part of the benefit and beauty of old age. We went to Winterthur and were the only ones at that hour to show up. It was a work day. Voila! We got to walk around and get all of our questions answered. Well, mostly. Some things we asked stumped the guide. I did learn a few things. The candle stand was adjustable. That way the light could be adjusted. Ha! Great idea. And the blown glass window was made of remnant panes. That is to say the panes were the discards from blowing glass. When made into a window it was considered art. Go figure. I’m leaning all sorts of new things these days.

  1. Arriving first thing on a Tuesday morning, a glassblower gave us a close-up private demonstration. As you said, it is an advantage to be retired.
