Tallahassee Museum

| February 20, 2014

The Tallahassee Museum is an large outdoor village and zoo. The village contains a train caboose, a schoolhouse, a church, a plantation house, kitchen and slave house. There is also a farmhouse and surrounding out buildings. I found the construction on the farm interesting, since things were done much differently in the south. There was […]

US Army Aviation Museum

| February 18, 2014

The US Army Aviation Museum is a Fort Rucker, Alabama, just a short drive from Dothan. It has a large collection of army aircraft. There seemed to be emphasis on helicopters, including the first presidential helicopter. It was fascinating to look at the drones, especially since they have been in the news lately. There were […]

Quiet Camping

| February 18, 2014

Sunset over Seminole Lake at Eastbank Campground Our first stop is Eastbank Corp of Engineers Campground in Bainbridge, Georgia. We had reserved here in advance of the trip. For whatever reason, I get uncomfortable if I don’t know where we will park for the night, so we planned this trip to have a “home” almost […]

Just a little Ride

| February 15, 2014

We headed out a little over a week ago to pick up our camper in Southeastern Georgia, where we stored it after a New Year’s trip. Although there was a snowfall the day before we left, the roads were OK and pretty much clear and dry once we got south of Toledo. We arrived at […]

What is Really Happening

иконографияКартинимека мебел Wow, too much to relate here. I have spent some time just thinking. What is important, what I should do first, second and so on. I was sick for a while, thankfully that is in the past. It did make me think even more, however. Our daughters are moving on, to places of […]

Thinking About the Economy: A Reminder

| January 1, 2010

Papa and I are happy to be here at Jekyll Island, on the Georgia coast, enjoying Adams and Anderson’s New Year’s Bluegrass Festival. Yes, it is a long drive, and yes it gets more difficult every year. But the warmer climate, the beach and the music make this trip among the most rewarding we take […]

Life Intervenes

| November 16, 2009

I have been absent, I know that. Last week, while I was counting my chickens and getting organized to head out to a fine music event in Ohio, Papa had a little medical problem. He spent a couple of days in a hospital, and I spend some time there with him. Things smoothed out, and […]

The Last Stages

| August 31, 2009

I guess I could say that fall is upon us, it was in the mid-forties at daylight this morning. The lowest temperature of the night is usually just before daylight around here. I wore a sweatshirt around the house yesterday, and was chilly in spite of my warmer clothing. I’m pretty sure that that trend […]

We’re out here at the Milan Michigan Bluegrass festival. The weather is cook, and a breeze to match. There are tons of campers, and the day crowd is rolling in. It is shaping up to be a wonderful festival, with perfect weather. We’ll post the first of the photos tomorrow, if we manage to get […]
