...Only I Didn't Say Fudge.

This weekend Michael and I traveled to Cleveland, OH for the wedding of two very dear friends. The wedding was absolutely beautiful! The bride and the groom thought of everything to make sure the travelers were comfortable and felt at home. It was amazing!

Michael was a groomsmen, so I was on my own most all of Saturday. I have to admit that I have been looking forward to this day for over a year. Why?-Because I had a very special place to visit in Cleveland. Now most people who visit Cleveland would end up at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or maybe even the Cleveland Museum of Art, but not me. I have a love for the obscure, so the number one place on my list to visit was the A Christmas Story house.

For those of you who don't know (and shame on you for not knowing), A Christmas Story is the movie that plays 24 hours on TBS on Christmas Eve. It has Ralphie and Randy and the little boy who gets his tongue stuck to the flag pole. Oh, and who could forget the famous leg lamp!


The house the movie was filmed at is in a neighborhood about five minutes from downtown Cleveland. It has been restored to its former movie glory and is open for tours. There is also a museum and gift shop across the street.

Here are just a few pictures I took on my adventure. I have a ton of pictures. In fact, I might have gone a little overboard with right around 70 pictures, but I don't want to bore you so I just included the biggies.

The sign greeting me as I arrived at my destination.


The house!

And the major award or leg lamp!



Touring the house didn't take me long, so I did make it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later in the day. However, I have to admit that it paled in comparison to the A Christmas Story House. :)


P.S.-Just in case you didn't know, the title of this post is a quote from the movie. In fact, it is one of my very favorite quotes from the movie. "Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words..."
