The motorhome is parked the Thousand Trails RV Resort located in Bow, a few miles north of Burlington, Washington. I’ve been here several times in past years. My departure date is August 14th.
I’m just hanging out taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.
Mary’s personal to-do list plate, which can only be handled by herself, continues to over-flow. Recently we acknowledged that her meeting up with me in September, just is not going to happen. 😦
I’ll next likely see her when I arrive at her home in November. A friend recently expressed a concern about the status of our relationship. Not to worry…it continues to function per our original agreement when we met in October, 2008. That is…I remain on the road and she will join me when her other life allows. We talk every day on the phone…sometimes more than once. It’s just the way life is!
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. If I’m writing a blog entry about a place, means I read about it in this great Civil War photo book with nearly 4,000 photographs and I have been there! I’ll continue these Blog postings until I’ve until I do them all in my collection.
Today’s subject: Andersonville National Historic Site – Georgia…
If you do not know the story of Andersonville…you need to click the below links. It was a horrible place and I remember vividly my visit there as the most emotional-raising place I have ever visited, including Pearl Harbor! At least at Pearl Harbor, the 2,896 deaths were during battle. More than 13,000 died at Andersonville…while prisoners of war!
Even as I write this…I feel those emotions returning inside me.
