Last week my brother, nephew and I went to The Evergreen Air and Space Museum. I think I had been when I was a little girl, but I can't remember. Either way, it was great! Especially amazing seeing The Spruce Goose, of Howard Hughes fame. It's GIANT. I could only get photos of fractions of it, so down there is a pic of me at it's nose. See? Giant.
We're not really flight or space enthusiasts, but enjoyed it nonetheless. I think besides The Spruce Goose, a 1928 passenger plane (with tufted leather seats) was my favorite. Must have been so terrifying exciting to ride a plane back then.
I wore my Aviation blouse from Jitterbuggin, which started a conversation with a really admirable woman named Rosemary. She liked my blouse and I liked her vest covered in pins and badges. She told me about them, and most are military from various family members. One was a photo of her first husband who survived Pearl Harbor, and ones from her second who survived Iwo Jima. Then she had many from her children and grandchildren who were/are in the military. Amazing woman! Most of her life spent waiting for someone to come home, I can't even imagine.
