Did a little sightseeing in Columbus today. I went to the zoo, where most of the animals seemed to be rather lethargic. Maybe it was the warm, humid weather.

In any event, it was a much more pleasant experience than the last time I went to a zoo.

After the zoo, I went downtown and visited the Thurber House, where James Thurber lived while he attended Ohio State from 1913 to 1917. It’s a wonderful museum. Among the interesting artifacts is the typewriter Thurber used while he was at the New Yorker.

Apparently, when Thurber died he had just begun a story called “Please Do Not Touch.” I wonder where he was going with that one...
