Grand Gulf Military State Park, Mississippi Day 2 (GA448)

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 September 10th..

 

 

 

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.

This entry was posted April 4, 2013…

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 drift SLOWLY north along the Mississippi River to Memphis, Tennessee where I’ll then turn northeast heading for New England for the Summer. Can’t go north too fast because it’s still cold up there! The Mississippi River is rich in history…I expect it to be an interesting passage.

————————————————————————————————————–

The motorhome is parked at the Military State Park in Grand Gulf, Mississippi. I expect to depart from here tomorrow morning.

 

 

Yesterday, on a cold, windy and rainy day, I drove the Bronco about 50 miles in search of a couple of ghosts from the past.

 

 

The first is Windsor Ruins. Set 10 miles from the nearest main road where access is by a narrow, winding and hilly road. It struck me as being remote even by today’s standards. Completed in 1861 it was the largest antebellum Greek Revival Mansion ever built in the State of Mississippi. The mansion burned to the ground by accident in 1890 after being occupied by both Confederate and Union forces and all that remain are 23 columns. All photos and drawings were destroyed in the fire. I urge you to take the time to read its intriguing history by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Here are some of the photos that I took…

This is a most unusual place to visit. I was left with a cold and eerie feeling.

 

 

Continuing on many miles of back-country sandy/muddy roads without any signs for help, I stumbled upon my second unusual quest. However, today is laundry day for me, so I’m saving that story for tomorrow’s Blog entry.

 

 

After finding my second quest, it took me about 10 miles more of those back-country roads to finally reach U.S. Highway 61 and the Old Country Store Restaurant, where owner Arthur Davis claims to make heavenly fried chicken. I just had to stop and find out if it was true.

 

 

 

 

 

The building has been there since 1875 and has housed many businesses. It was quite different from what I expected. Here are some photos that I took…

He says…I hope you brought your appetite! The all-you-can-eat lunch buffet is served from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. The buffet includes fried chicken and other meats (sometimes catfish and ribs), tossed salad, cucumber/tomato salad, potato salad, coleslaw, mac & cheese, corn on the cob, green beans, turnip greens, dirty rice, field peas, sweet potatoes, dressing and cornbread for only $10.95

Yuma Proving Ground 75th Anniversary

 

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ 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 American Legion Post #19 in Yuma, Arizona.

 

 

 

 

Two days ago (Saturday), my friend Colorado and I went to the Yuma Proving Ground (about 25 miles north of Yuma) to view their 75th Anniversary display.

 

For the first time I decided to take the photos with my new smart phone. I’m a day late in reporting this activity because I had one heck of a time trying to figure out how to download the photos to my laptop computer on which I write my blog postings. The phone was easier to haul around in its belt holster than my larger and bulkier Sony camera.

 

This is a really large facility. To read all about the Yuma Proving Ground, you should click this link…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuma_Proving_Ground

 

 

Another thing I need to explain is that in addition to the regular about 95,000 Yuma population, at this time of the year there about another estimated 80,000 snowbirds, of which I am one.  🙂 And based on my Saturday experience, I’m guessing about one-half of Yuma attended…read on…

 

Most all of these folks got there on the one and only road. I met my friend Colorado at VFW Post #8242 about 12 miles north of Yuma and from there we drove on in my Bronco. From the VFW Post to the entrance gate of  Yuma Proving Ground is 13 miles which took us 1.5 hours!!!!

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

This first photo is the view as soon as you leave US Highway 59. The post gate is 6 miles away from here…

 

 

 

 

And it was SLOW GOING…

 

 

 

 

1.5 hours after leaving the VFW Post we turn into YPG…

 

 

 

 

After the long drive, first thing was a pit stop. My friend Colorado (only one year older than myself) needs a walker for longer walks…

 

 

 

 

It was a cloudless sunny day and 82 degrees warm. Shade is at a premium here…

 

 

 

The following photos show some of the things we saw…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now you know where some of your tax dollars are being spent.

 

When we left if mid-afternoon, the ride back to the VFW Post was only 20 minutes as opposed to the 1.5 hours getting there. All in all, an enjoyable day despite the hot sunshine.  🙂

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos…

Forecast for today is sunny and 82 degrees.

Oak Harbor Tavern – Oak Harbor, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ve been here many times before. I’ll depart here September 20th.

 

I’ll be hanging out in this general area until about the beginning of October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about three weeks.)

 

 

 

Today’s subject…

 

 

About one month ago I visited Oak Harbor, Washington and since I’d not stopped here before, took a walk around town. I stopped in at the oldest business in town, the Oak Harbor Tavern. Because of the nearby Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, it has a heavy military decor.

 

 

Here are some of the photos that I took…

Armed Forces Park And An Unusual Happening!

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California. Less than 1/2 mile away is the Colorado River and on the other side…the sunniest place on Earth…Yuma, Arizona. I’m here hanging out and enjoying the nice weather. I have several friends in the area. Mary is currently dealing with some medical issues. Her return-to-me date is now looking like mid-February.

Yesterday’s blog was about Military Appreciation Day in Yuma. Only a short two blocks away is a nice Armed Forces Park.

From the Chamber of Commerce website…

Yuma’s Armed Forces Park is located at the site of the old Yuma railroad depot.

The only park of its type in Arizona, one of the most unique features about the Armed Forces Park is that it has been designed to honor ALL military veterans, living and deceased, no matter which branch of service. To be honored with a plaque, a person needs only to have served in one of the military branches, whether  current or years.

The plaques are made of solid granite. Each is eight inches high and 16 inches wide. Each plaque is individually engraved with the person’s name, rank, dates of service, and includes his or her service emblem. The proceeds from $125 per plaque sales will be used for park construction and future maintenance costs.

I estimate we received 0.33 inches of rain. How can I be so accurate???? Well, the monthly average for this area is 0.33 inches and there is no more rain in the forecast for the rest of the month of January. Simple, huh?  🙂

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a cloudy/rainy day at 66 degrees.  Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 71 degrees.

BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS

We had one day to visit Brownsville. The old town portion is just like a border town on the Mexico side. Cheap goods and people hawking as you leave their shops, or not. Small Mexican restaurants with hand written signs. The store keepers struggle with English because most of their customers speak Spanish. That is a slap-dash impression, obviously,  since we didn’t visit a great many places. But, it is colorful, and lively and fun.

Texas became a state in 1854. Our lasting impression of Texas is embodied in cowboys, gunfights, cattle drives, branding and bandits.  The Lower Rio Grande flew seven different flags, Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederacy, Republic of the Rio Grande, and United States. It’s true  history is  of revolution and war; multiple skirmishes with Mexico over  borders and control.  Visitors can visit unimpressive battlefields like Palmito Ranch and  Palo Alto, and more visually impressive Fort Brown, located on the University of Texas at Brownsville. But the whole story is told in the Brownsville Historical Association complex of a museum and the furnished house of Charles Stillwell, Brownsville’s founder.

DSC00516

It seems there has always been a military presence around Brownsville.

DSC00527And Guerrillas too. If armies and guerrillas weren’t fighting, the police, Texas Rangers and the Sheriffs were warring over politics and favorable positions in government.

DSC00517 (Copy)

Almost all politics and city decisions were made at Crixell’s Bar. No women allowed, of course. And, founder, Stillwell was not unlike our modern-day CEO’s. He grabbed land, bought interests in every thriving enterprise and became wealthy beyond reason, but always wanted more, more,more while the common people grumbled, went to work and kept them going. Of course, the elites made the laws that forever kept the common people working and prevented them from making the land grabs Stillwell and the other mega-ranch owners got while opportunity was ripe.

 

DSC00520 (Copy)

People worked in the silver mines, they farmed, and did all building and manual labor.

A local photographer made his living photographing the people of Brownsville. Here are some samples

DSC00512 (Copy)

In his best clothes, he reported to the studio.

DSC00513 (Copy)

The huge skirts and decoration mean she was a woman of means.

DSC00511 (Copy)

This barefoot boy of color with what looks like a pipe in his hand and mouth? The photographer was known for photographing people of the streets.

The Museum had a huge section on Mexican governors and Presidents.

DSC00522 (Copy)

Boy soldiers were not unusual in Mexican armies. Mexican women also followed their men into battles to feed and cook for them, and sew and mend and give comfort to them.

DSC00533 (Copy)

Faces of the revolution. The strong lighting and glass makes picture-taking difficult in museums.

DSC00524 (Copy)

This one of a kind, German built MAN automobile was built like a tank for a soon to be president who didn’t make it. After his lost bid, it was sealed behind a brick wall, never to be seen for many, many years. After that it has had two owners before the museum acquired it.

DSC00530 (Copy)

DSC00534 (Copy)

The death photo of Zapata.

DSC00540 (Copy)

This drawing depicts something in which I  have a small connection. A woman from my neighboring Tuolumne County claimed, “I am here because of a single white bean.”  She went on to tell her story of her grandfather being among Santa Anna”s prisoners when he ordered every tenth Texan killed. According to her, he couldn’t afford to feed all of his prisoners. The prisoners dipped into a pot of beans. If they drew a white bean, they were saved, a black bean they were shot. People doubted the story was true, even from our historical society. I never doubted for a minute. And, here,  Proof, it really happened.

It is a well done museum and very worth visiting.

DSC00552 (Copy)

The Stillwell House next to the Museum is very richly furnished with an eye to authentic detail.

DSC00551 (Copy)

The family history is enmeshed  with the political and economic map of the area,very well done and interesting. Do visit, there are many surprises here.

DSC00582 (Copy)

Not far away, is a costume and childrens museum. They are near the zoo and close to Highway 77 /83 if you go. The Costume Museum is only one room, jammed full of Mexican folk clothing. They make the point, something I’ve learned from visting other countries, that various villages had a traditional dress and everyone dressed that way, everyday. The colorful clothing, the beautiful handwork, embroidery and designs were dazzling. All new stuff, beautifully done. I would loved to have seen it in a bigger room with bigger areas of separation. It only cost $2 each for us to look. The children’s museum is in the same building and she invited us to view it too.

DSC00596 (Copy)

About each village is a small history.

DSC00589 (Copy)

I could have spent more time here, but it is enjoyable even at 20 minutes.

DSC00590 (Copy)

This antique piece, a wedding, a festival costume,  and day of the dead display were depicted as well.

We reported back to the Motor Home at the VFW, and enjoyed the company of “friends” for a couple of hours. Another good weather day.,

It’s Been A Long Time Since…

I have had a professional haircut for only $5. Recently I walked in to Don’s Barber Shop on Main Street in Monroe, Washington. His normal price is $8, but for retirees it’s only $5! I’m pleased to report it was a good haircut. As a full-time RVer for the last 16 years, I’ve had my haircut by many different barbers…I, in truth, cannot say that all of them were great.

In addition to the price, there was something else unusual about Don’s Barber Shop. Most barbers seeing an unfamiliar face tend to be very chatty… who are you…where are you from…etc…?

Not at Don”s….here is our entire dialogue…

He: Next!

Me: Medium…not too long,,,not short.

He: Okay.

When finished…

He: Okay?

Me: Yup

Me: How much do I owe you?

He: Five.

Me: Here you are (handing him the money).

He: Thanks.

So at Don’s Barber Shop for $5 one gets a good haircut and five words of dialogue.

For me…another unusual experience!

I get the feeling he might have been a barber in the military…they don’t much either. Next time I go back…I’m going to try an engage him in a discussion. It will be fun to see if I can double the word production to ten words!  🙂
