MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Thursday morning

It’s another full day at The Park and I don’t know how today could ever hope to top yesterday. We had Guests from Nevada. Wisconsin, Chicago, two sets from Kansas, Texas, Maryland, and two college-age fellows from France who wanted to travel all the distance to see The National Museum of the United States Air Force, Carillon Park, and the graves of The Wright Brothers. A large group came in on a bus and spent several hours with us. Scavenger hunts are quite popular at The Park and we had a group of contractors from the base swallowing up all the details and information throughout the campus and interior museum which is called The Heritage Center. I received a lot more questions for historical information, as well, and that made the day glide along faster and with more fun. I was still working with Guests on questions twenty minutes past my shift’s end.

I also managed to squeeze in much research on the 1913 Dayton Flood. Unbelievable. It’s one thing to study the natural disaster that overtook the region but it’s even more unbelievable to learn how the resilience of the people conquered and moved forward with optimism and courage. The Miami Valley Conservancy is a marvel!

Today promises to be much cooler at 66 degrees than yesterday’s high of 91 degrees. We have a few days of temperatures in the 70s but it seems we will be hanging out in the upper 60s for most of the weekend and coming week. By this time next week, we shall be greeting October.

Last night was kind of a dismal routine of not doing much. I purchased a new biography on John H. Patterson, founder of The National Cash Register Company, NCR, and I spent a good deal of time reading through it. Mostly, I just relaxed and watched classic television on Pluto.

It’s time to shower, dress, pack my prepped lunch, and head to The Park.

Make it a great day!
