BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, Bought the Post Card

In the Summer of 1958 Dad packed us all in the Chevy and hit the road.  We drove form Alabama to Cheyenne, Wyoming to see the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, "The Daddy of them all".
Fifty years later in 2008 My brother and I made a trip back to Cheyenne to Frontier Days.  We had passed through a few years before and decided to return for the Rodeo.  It was a wonderful time and I am glad we were able to make the trip.  I have included some video LINKS for your viewing pleasure.





Been there...
Done that!

"ON THE TOWN"

Let's take some time and do some sightseeing today.
I lived a few blocks from here my second year in New York.
Lived on 37th between Park and Madison
Looking up Fifth Avenue
You know... I think I may have had lunch in that F.W.Woolworth store.

Here is Herald Square, Where Broadway Meets Sixth Avenue
Look we can do a little shopping at GIMBELS.
Maybe we can go down to CHINATOWN
for some Chinese food at lunch time.
I hope we can take a moment and check out Madison Square Garden.
What a Day, I am exhausted!

to visit our Nations Capital. 
Going to be lots of parties and goings on this week in D.C. 
What better way to enjoy this time than by reminiscing of how things use to be.   And how we can make them better for tomorrow.

FABULOUS FLORIDA FAVORITES

I remember the Serpentarium in South Miami.
Never went.  Snakes make me CRAZY!
Makes my skin crawl,
that and spiders.

UP, UP, & AWAY!

Chalks Airways once operated Sea Planes across Biscayne Bay on Watson Island.
"I remember those flights.   Thirty five years ago when I moved to Miami I thought those Sea Planes were so cool.  I had never seen them in action before.  It was quite a fun experience to watch them take off and land.  I have to say in the time I have lived here the downtown skyline has changed incredibly, from a big town to a major city."  
(History of Chalks Air introduction from Wikipedia)
The airline was founded by Arthur "Pappy" Chalk, and started ad-hoc charter operations as the Red Arrow Flying Service in 1917. After "Pappy" Chalk served in the Army Air Service in World War I, he returned to Miami and commenced scheduled service between Miami and Bimini in the Bahamas in February 1919 as Chalk's Flying Service. Chalk's first base was a beach umbrella on the Miami shore of Biscayne Bay. In 1926 a landfill island, Watson Island, was created in Biscayne Bay close to Miami. Chalk's built an air terminal there, and operated from the island for the next 75 years.
