The Patriot Festival

The Patriot Festival - Go the extra mile 5K + at the Symphony Park here in Charlotte NC. 




My daughter-in-law and her dad running together in their first 5K. 


And here comes my daughter-in-law.


And now here is her dad coming into the finish line.


And here they come together finishing the Extra Mile. 


You both did a fantastic job and we are all proud of the both of you.


This is the first person to finish the 5K. I must admire ALL the people who are in these races and the job they do in running. So also below are a couple more pictures of people that I really had to say, you've got to be kidding me. You ran that 5K pushing a stroller? WOW!!! You people are really super. Congratulations to all of the people who ran this race.

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.
