Driving In & Around Charlotte NC

* You must be talking on your cell phone in order to drive and just focus on your phone call instead of driving.

* No need for any turn signals, let everyone else try to figure out if you really are going to turn and if so, which way. Make it a guessing game for them. And don't ever use a turn signal when changing lanes either.

* Speed limit signs are just a guideline for the minimum speed you can travel.

* Stop signs really just mean to slow down, sort of a rolling stop. You don't really have to come to a complete stop.

* Don't bother moving over for emergency vehicles even if they have their lights flashing and sirens going.

* Don't bother waiting to read that memo or letter at work or home, just read it while you are driving.

* You might as well get used of the tailgating. It's about the only most people know how to drive here.

* It's OK, go ahead, have one more for the road.

* When you are stopped at a red stop light and it turns green, you might want to wait a few seconds before taking off because there are way too many people who believe it's OK to run red lights.

* When it comes to cars merging onto the highway, don't think about moving over to the left hand lane and let them in, make them take a few risk with their merging. And those who are merging, you might want to get your speed up instead of going 35 mph. 

Arrrgghh !!!

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.
