A visit to the museum was very interesting. They have 20+ aircraft, even a couple I had flown in while in the service. The most impressive one they have is the Piedmont Airlines DC-3, and that is a real jewel. This plane is so clean inside and out. The only "high-tech" instrument added to it has been a weather radar unit, nothing else, not even a GPS unit. It makes the trip here very worthwhile to see a plane like this.
I'm not all sure they sleep here or under the deck during the night, but anyway, they were here this morning. I will have to keep check each morning to see if they are sleeping there. Don't have a clue where they came from, but must admit, they are cute. Mommy and her two young ones.
The motel from a scene in the movie "Domestic Disturbance" starring John Travolta. Jeff and I were down in Wilmington, NC back in 2001 when they were shooting this movie. Got to see a couple of the sets and of course all of the behind the scenes stuff, like wardrobe and the support equipment.
The rides and the games. One thing I have learned from this trip. Just sit back and enjoy the simple things in life. This is what life is all about. Hey, if you ever get the chance be sure to check out Oakboro and especially when they are having their 4th of July celebration or the Cruise-In. It really is a great small town.
This was the firemen competition in Oakboro during the 4th of July celebration. One must really respect these people and the job they do after watching this. I can't imagine being in all that gear then running with a hose and going around objects. These people really hump butt. Good competition and educational.
