Silent Wings Museum – Lubbock, Texas

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. She is busy with personal matters.

Last September during my eye exam at the Seattle, Washington VA Hospital I was told I have a large cataract in my right eye that should be attended to in the next year. My new doctor has made the necessary arrangements to have my eye problem corrected. I’m hoping to have my cataract surgery completed prior to Mary going to Turkey with her grandson on April 18th.

My new eye exam date is now March 19th.

Some extra photos today. Yesterday early morning, I saw a portion of Mary’s bottle wall being reflected in the motorhome driver’s outside rear view mirror…

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

Lubbock, Texas – Day 2

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is still parked at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Airee #4271. I expect to be here for a few more days.

Yesterday I drove the about 11 miles to the Silent Wings Museum…where they present the story of the World War II Glider Program. If you are unfamiliar with the role gliders played in World War II, this informational link will bring you up to speed…

I spent an enjoyable 1.5 hours there. Besides the fully restored glider, the was a 15 minute video and lots of World War II memorabilia.

There were almost 14,000 of the gliders built by 16 different companies. Ford Motor Company built the largest amount…almost 5,000 of them. Ford was the lowest bidder at just under $16,000. That figure adjusted for inflation from 1942 would be about $225,000 today.

Here are some photos that I took…
