4th Of July Parade In Harrisburg NC

And as you can see here, even Johnny Depp showed up for the parade. I don't know who they really are but they were all fantastic. And especially Captain Jack Sparrow was really great. He had the mannerism, the walk, and the talk. 

Now this was pretty neat to see a working waterfalls on a float

Sky King

This man had a great voice and was singing a really great song. 

It's BO time anytime as far as I'm concerned

Anyway, it was another GREAT parade in downtown Harrisburg, NC. And the Harrisburg Presbyterian Church was giving away ice cold bottle of water and watermelon. No donation buckets, no request for money, no preaching, just plain serving. Talk about leading the Christian life by example, these people do it.

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.
