We had a little fun with the co-workers last weekend. We went downtown for dinner and then took the Trolley over to The Christmas Story Museum that just opened up here in Cleveland. Remember the flick? Ralphie desperate for a red-rider BB-gun for Christmas? Well, the story takes place in Cleveland and parts were filmed here at a house down in Tremont. It was like stepping back in time about 50 years… can’t explain the joy I felt there. But I liked it! So I took a few pictures in case you might be interested.

We also wrapped and delivered a bunch of presents to the Phillis Wheatley Josephine Kohler Academy downtown. Many of the kids there probably won’t get another Christmas present. That’s a fun tradition at IdeaStar. Great to see everyone’s kids come down for the event — and bring a little cheer to others.
