Big Lick Farm Days Festival

I came here on Sunday morning and so some of the antique dealers may have already packed up and left since it was the last day. But still there was enough to see and a very wide selection of items.

Mmmmm maybe....

Eat your heart out Robbie Knievel. I just know that I could jump over as many cars as Robbie with this beauty. I could start by jumping over that black Kia in the driveway. Hey, if I don't make it over, oh well, it's not my car.

Well here are some beautiful chairs and someone could have had two of them on their front porch for a mere $32 each. But oh no, they believe they can get just as good a chair for $10. Well time will tell and when they get that $10 beauty it will be on here.

Anyway. all of this was made possible by Hinson Auction. If you are looking for vintage items and some new, I suggest that you go to one of the auctions here, it really is worthwhile attending.

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.
