Last Day in Houston: 2 Museums and the Mets on TV

We started out today by visiting the Holocaust Museum of Houston.  We received a tour by a docent who was a Holocaust survivor born in Poland.  I didn't realize that about half of the Jews killed were from Poland. The goal of the museum is to educate the public about the dangers of hate, prejudice, and apathy.  The museum will close very shortly for a major renovation and expansion.

We left about 1:30 PM and headed for the John R. Museum of Health and  Medical Science.  It was similar in scope to the Hall of Science in Flushing.

Right now I am doing what I would normally do on a Wednesday evening:  listening to Cousin Brucie on SiriusXM.  Tonight's Met game is on ESPN, so I am watching it while listening to the radio.  Since Jacob deGrom is pitching, the Mets have a chance.  It hasn't been a very good season.  Maybe a celebrity will catch a foul ball in the stands.
