Seafoam Candy

My brother was kind enough to send us a bag of the famous McDonalds Seafoam Candy.This is the best that I have ever had. I knew Jim McDonald back when I was a just a kid and he was running this candy shop about a block from our house back in Muskegon MI. He then added a cafe that served breakfast and lunches. Then in my high school years I remember he moved to a building on Apple Ave, and my house was right behind it. Spent some time there when I was in high school playing the pinball machines. My mother hated that. I believed she called it the devils work. LOL In time they moved to another store on Getty St where they are still located. I guess after having a couple pieces of this seafoam I won't have to worry about going into a diabetic coma, but will have to worry about my blood glucose hitting the 400+ range. Anyway, it's a special treat and then in only a very small amount per day. They are working on their website yet but soon you should be able to order direct from them. Click HERE to go to their website and read about them and also order candy. I guess I send the medical bill to my brother...

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.
