ima hogg's house
Yesterday, before celebrating the holiday with friends, Marcus, Alex and I wandered over to the mansion of Ima Hogg, the late socialite, art collector and daughter of a former governor of Texas. While she was still alive, she donated her artworks and mansion to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and they've kept it as a living exhibit of 19th century furniture and artwork, open to the public.
It was sort of cool to see how the other half lived.
(Incidentally, yesterday I learned rumors that the poor, unfortunately-named Ima had a sister named "Ura" are greatly exaggerated. She only had brothers, and they were mercifully named William and Mike.)
Have a great week, friends.
