National Museum of the USAF – Trip 2

Good morning. Today is the May the 4th. If you are a Star Wars fan it is “May the force” (be with you). TBS is having a Star Wars marathon that started at 2:30 this morning. Clyde is hoping to watch as many of the old movies as he can. That’s ok with me, I can spend my time beading. It is going to rain on and off all day anyway and Melissa has to work.

Day 165.¬†We went back to the USAF Museum in Dayton, Ohio as we didn’t get to see everything last Sunday when we were there. Today we started our tour in the Vietnam War exhibit. As this war happened during Clyde and my teen years, it was very meaningful to us.

Just  before we were ready to call it a day we saw an exhibit in the hallway that caught our eye. Our grandson Tristan had been to the museum with his scout troop many years ago and he had remembered this exhibit. As a dog lover this exhibit was special to him and he knew we would enjoy seeing it also.

Just visiting those two exhibits took us well into the afternoon. What Melissa and I don’t do for our history buff. We only wish Tristan had been able to be with us, as he loves history just as much as his Grandpa, and it would have been nice to see the two of them share this time together. I think for us to completely see all of the exhibits we will need to go back two more times. It is a good thing Melissa lives so close to the museum. I think we will save the rest of the exhibits for the next time we come to visit her.

Loving our lifestyle. Have a good day.

Until next time,
