Northwest Airlines headquartered previously in Eagan and this was their credit union. Delta Airlines merged with Northwest and now this institution has a newer name, "Wings Financial" Federal Credit Union. What architectural details do you notice?

Linda the bird watcher
While Eagan Television was interviewing me, suddenly up walked Linda, a retired elementary school teacher. She had just been hiking and bird-watching and she gracefully agreed to pose in front of this ol' barn along Highway 110 in Mendota Heights just north of Eagan.

Dining with Brazilians
Six Brazilians were our special guests at Wednesday evening's potluck dinner along with 30 others through the Eagan Rotary Club. White sweater clad Robson is the Rotary youth exchange student at Eagan High School this year and the 5 others are visiting Minnesota from Parana state in south Brazil for one month through the Rotary International "Group Study Exchange" program. All the Minnesota hot-dishes and other foods came out after the photo session.
Left-to-right: Robson, Flavia, Mayra, Claudia, Joao and Nataniel.

Bright orange & yellow
It seemed odd to find this guy and his horse riding through a residential neighborhood. When I asked him why he was wearing BRIGHT orange & yellow, he answered, "Cuz I don't want to get hit by a car!"

Our French friend, Isabelle, and her two daughters are visiting for 2 weeks in the Twin Cities from Paris after having moved back to France over a year ago.

These Highway 77 bridges cross the Minnesota River between Eagan and Bloomington. Luckily, a generous highway side apron gives emergency vehicles and bloggers the chance to safely pull over! See other BRIDGES at Louis la Vache's weekly Sunday Bridge meme here.

This truck parked at the post office was like a lesson in American symbols: American flag, Jefferson Memorial, Liberty Bell, Bald Eagle, Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore.

Soup for the hungry
Hundreds of people came to select a handmade pottery bowl donated by local artists and make a financial donation to the Eagan food shelf. Several local restaurants served soups and bread in Eagan's second annual "Empty Bowls" event, a food shelf fundraiser started several years ago and carried out in cities across the country.
