The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. My scheduled departure date is July 24th..
Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues along…slowly. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September. 😦
On July 12th, I blogged about the great Civil War photo book I found in a Goodwill store. If you missed that posting, here’s the link…http://wp.me/pDCku-ckv
I’ve really enjoyed reading this book reminding me of the many places I’ve been that played an important role in the Civil War. I’ve decided it would be a great time to re-visit some of the places and share them with you.
Today’s subject: Grant’s Canal near Delta, Louisiana…
Unless you are a student of the Civil War, you may not know union general Ulysses S. Grant once tried to change the course of the Mississippi River…and failed! I took the below photos April 21, 2007…
