Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Conner, Washington. I’ll depart here August 13th.
Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.
Note: Mary flew from Baton Rouge Airport, Louisiana on March 12 to her home in California. I’m hoping to get her back with me by mid-April. My current plans are to stay here for a few days and then start SLOWLY drifting north along the Mississippi River to Memphis, Tennessee where I’ll then turn northeast heading for New England. Can’t go north too fast because it’s still cold up there! I now expect to leave on Monday.
The motorhome is currently parked at VFW Post #4224 in Baker, a few miles north of Baton Rouge.
Yesterday was another interesting day. I drove the Bronco the about 10 miles to the African-American Museum in Baton Rouge. They are located at 528 South Boulevard and have no website that I could find. Located adjacent to the New St. Luke’s Baptist Church and partially under the overhead of Interstate Highway 10, Founder-Curator Sadie Roberts-Joseph provided a most interesting visit. She has been dedicated to this labor of love for 12 years.
The official name of the museum is the Odell S. Williams Now & Then Museum of African-American History. Odell S. Williams taught African-American History to elementary school children in Baton Rouge. She passed away in 2009.
Here are some of the photos that I took…

69-year-old Sadie Roberts-Joseph is an intelligent, knowledgeable and well-spoken individual. She exhumes compassion, love, consideration and giving to all human beings. After my one hour there, I felt that my life had been enriched by my visit with her…
On the way back to the motorhome I had another nice experience. I stopped by American Legion Post #502. The American Legion is currently celebrating its 94th birthday and this post has been in existence for 85 years. Other than the bar tender, the only person there was Mr. Bell, an 88-year-old World War II Veteran. He told me the post has less than one-half dozen World War II Veterans left. We spoke for about 45 minutes and he related some of his war stories with me. Another enriching experience!
