Cleveland Rocks


We had a couple of unplanned days off in Cleveland and spent one of them at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Grandma and Grandpa, who drove in from Toledo. It was more interesting than I expected. I wanted to take every fabulous costume home with me. Tariku was running around and dancing to the music and having a grand ole time, but he was making the security guards a little bit nervous and a few started following us from room to room.

Their vigilance was justified. Tariku turned suddenly, ran under the ropes and made a wild attempt to play John Lennon’s piano. I (with admitted reluctance) pried his little fingers off the ivories while Scott explained to the security guards that we’d leave peacefully and there was no need to 86 us.

Yes, we got kicked out of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But not before we took this picture with the Weezer W.

I told Tariku we’d be back and they’d be begging him to play that piano.

Just you wait.

  1. We were at the RRHOF in April; had tix to the inductions. It sounds like Tariku had more fun than my kids (who are older) did. Interestingly, my oldest is now clamoring to go back.

    I think the place needed to soak into him before he could dig it.

  2. cleveland born, cleveland raised. and at 18 i ran away as fast as my legs would carry! hope you enjoyed your stay! next time come visit us in cincinnati!

  3. Last time we listened to Abbey Road backwards and at slow speed , we swear we heard a chorus saying “Tariku must play John Lennon’s piano.Tariku must play John Lennon’s piano. ect. ect. ect.”
