MY DAY: A day of fun and it’s not done!

This has been a fun, fun day!

I rose at 7 AM, took the furry Trio on a brisk, short walk, and returned home for breakfast. I spent the majority of my time working in my study the remainder of the morning.

At noon, I met Lea Loree at Little Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant on Woodman Drive.  The food was delicious, and the company refreshing, and fun.

I decided to take a chance to visit the presidential hangar at the Museum of The United States Air Force. Typically, when I visit the museum, good to work for the presidential planes is always filled.

Today, however, I hit the jackpot. There was one seat available and the next-door was in 30 minutes.

Pres. Truman’s plane, “The Independence,” was closed for renovation. I walked through Pres. Eisenhower’s plane, “The Columbine,” and Pres. Franklin Roosevelt’s plane, “The Sacred Cow,” which had an elevator to accommodate his wheelchair.

My favorite plane of the presidential fleet is SAM 2600.  The history that accompanies this particular exhibit is overwhelming.  This was the aircraft that flew Pres. John Kennedy to Dallas Texas, only to return with the president and his casket.  You get to stand in the spot where Pres. Lyndon Johnson was sworn in, as well as the area, in the rear of the plane, where Pres. Kennedy’s casket sat on the return flight to Washington DC.    I spent some time in the bookstore, and then returned home to take the dogs for a walk.  Now, I am down by the Dayton mall running a few errands before I return home for more spring break fun and cleaning.
