Kodak Moment #74

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from the Words & Pictures Museum in 1996.


This is a photo of my friend Ninja and I on the second floor at the Words & Pictures Museum.  This was the only trip where I got to hang out with Ninja, she was visiting the United States from France.  We met at the Words & Pictures Museum during the weekend of September 20th, 21st & 22nd in 1996 at the Membership party.  Molly Bode, introduced Ninja and I, as Ninja was helping out around at Mirage Studios.

That same weekend was my first time doing an internet friend meet up, as I met Shredder from TMNT-L for the first time in person.  We knew each other since January 1996 so he was a new friend as well that year.  I’m still in touch with Shredder to this day as he’s one of my longest time internet friends.  It really was a great weekend of hanging out with fellow TMNT fans.

The second floor of the Words & Pictures Museum was my favorite floor at the Museum.  It had interactive stuff from games, chalkboard, drawing tables to an electric chalkboard.  Above our heads in this photo is where one would see the big Ninja Turtle statues that they had hanging from the walls.  I spent a lot of my time at the Museum hanging out on this floor and was very open that it was my favorite part of the Museum. 

Have you ever been to the Words & Pictures Museum?  Do you remember your first internet friend meet up in real life?  Please share thoughts, comments and questions below.
