My Coca-Cola Machine

My 1964 Coca-Cola Machine is back home after a brief stint at the hanger.  About a year ago we brought it over to the hanger to be cleaned and slightly refurbished.  It looks beautiful and I am happy to have my conversation piece back in my kitchen.

No Ribbon - Already Planning Next Year

Winning a ribbon at the State Fair may take me a couple of tries. I'm satisfied with the personal goal I had this summer to enter my school house collection.  AND I will find a great spot in my home to hang my collection of Minnesota School houses.  BUT I'm not going to give up, I'm just going to enlist Tim with his incredible small detail talents and together we are going to get a ribbon at the Minnesota State Fair!

Looking forward to the judges commentary

This collection was REALLY good.  It deserved the Blue ribbon.
Happy with my goal - of entering : )

National Aviation Day

Landing...this picture shows the little falls.

Little Falls Minnesota- Morrison County Airport

Three planes at the airport...ours being the prettiest.

 The Morrison County airport has a nice FBO and a courtesy car.

We visited the  Minnesota Historical Society's museum of Charles Lindbergh's boyhood home.
There was costumed actors playing the role's of Lindbergh's mother and neighbors during the start up of World War I

 My favorite room of the house was Lindbergh's porch bedroom.  It overlooked the Mississippi river and the weather was perfect Saturday peering out the screened windows.

Our flight was perfect.  The scenery...great.  

On our way home we flew right over St. Paul

Saturday on Madeline Island

 Sunday we spent the day flying to and visiting Madeline Island.  We had beautiful weather and had wonderful flight, but somehow I felt robbed because we really needed a few more hours inhaling the clean island air and enjoying the sites in relaxing fashion.  Biking to LaPointe was a heated mess on our fabulous fold up bikes, but really how lucky I am to have such wonderful adventures at a moments notice.
