EMR On Goldenwillow Drive - Gas Leak

A gas leak in a house just a couple of homes down from us. I was impressed with the response of the Charlotte Fire Dept., 3 trucks which included a ladder truck. There was also a truck from the Robinson Volunteer Fire Dept. as a back up. Thank God there was no explosion of any type, no one serious injured and all ended well. A woman was seen by the paramedics but was not taken to the hospital. I could just imagine an explosion there and the lives that would have been lost. One truck on the scene yet along with a truck from the gas company. They have put large exhaust fans in the garage to clear the gas out. Once again, our Charlotte Fire Dept on the scene and doing a great job.

Court Street, Jacksonville, NC

Where did they all go? The jewelry store? The bars? The restaurants? The clothing stores? But, as I stopped to walk and take a couple of pictures I could still hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the food from my memories of Court Street. So many changes in the past 46 years... 

And of course, don't forget Old Bridge Street

Stonewall Jackson Training School

Welcome to the Stonewall Jackson Training School located just outside Concord, NC. These here are the original buildings that were built back in 1909. Of course there is a much newer facility located behind all these buildings now. It was the first juvenile home in the state of North Carolina. I have to sit here and wonder what kind of boys were sent here. How were they treated here? Did they go on and lead productive lives from here? 

The Cannon House

One of the "cottages", as they were called, where the boys were put up. 

Another one of the "cottages".

The grounds around the school and cottages.

Concord Mills Mall

Finally back to the walking routine, I hope. On the cold and really hot days I can come here and walk in the mall. It's .8 miles per lap and if you walk all the entrance's it's 1 mile per lap. If the weather is good then I can go to the Fairfield Park over in Mint Hill and walk one of the two courses there.
