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.
Sadly Mary is struggling with health issues. To see the latest about her situation, click here

The motorhome is parked at Moose Club #2178 in Bakersfield, California. I’ll depart later this morning.
Usually I stay here only one day during my north to south and south to north migrations. This time I decided to stay an extra day.
The day started with plans to visit the Buck Owens Crystal Palace Museum. Stupidly I did not check their open hours before departure and they surprised me by not being open until Wednesday after I’ll be gone. Oh well, some other time.
Since I was so close I decided to wander around downtown Bakersfield. Sadly there is little to get exited about here. But despite that fact, look at what I did find…

The world’s largest Woolworth’s store.. Built in 1939, it has four floors of a total of 55,000 square feet. When did you last see a Woolworth’s? It’s been many years for me and certainly not this big…
Instead of the usual stuff you’d usually find in a Woolworth’s, this one is an antique mall full of thousand of unusual consignment items for sale…
It also has a 76 foot dairy bar that can seat 36 patrons. Largest dairy bar I’ve ever seen…

When you opened this blog, I’ll bet you were thinking something big was like a hot dog or something like that. Fooled ya! 🙂
Have a fun day!
Enjoyed at great taco salad at the Moose Club yesterday afternoon.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.
Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
