A Trip to Poquoson

What a fun get-a-away!!

Yesterday I had my plans all made to go to Wal-mart, my favorite place. NOT. 

However, when an invitation came from daughter, Shirley, to go to Poquoson to a friend's open house, I couldn't say no. 

I had never been to Poquoson and I do love new adventures.

To join in VERY LATE to Willy Nilly Friday and Five On Friday.............. here goes.

1. Things can get so screwed up if you aren't careful. I was to meet Shirley at Jalapenos in Smithfield. That's what she said, 'meet me at Jalapenos'. Okay, so I get there. She's not there yet so I go inside to wait. Besides, I am thirsty. She meant we'd meet there, I'd jump in her car, leaving mine in the parking lot. Well, it ended up we had a quick Mexican lunch which was not on the schedule. 

2. Driving past Langley Air Force Base, I saw this strange HUGE contraption looming at us from behind a bunch of trees. I have no idea what it was but it was fun getting it's picture. Do you have an idea? Maybe it's a new military weapon.... hehe

3. This sign cracked me up!! Now, my Mom and step-dad owned a dry cleaners. I helped them a lot when I was young. I know the chemicals that are used to DRY CLEAN clothes and there's nothing organic about them. So, naturally this peaked my interest. 

The question outta my mouth: "How do you dry clean organically?"

Shirley's reply: a clothes line.

4. And, check out this Wind tunnel!!

Oh how I would love to see inside.  They check out different airplanes inside... imagine that!

That's the military for you!

5. Coming home, the sunlight shining through some tall reedy weeds was making an awfully pretty picture. Of course, I am hanging out the window while Shirley is driving... and the picture isn't nearly as pretty as they were in real life.

If you try hard enough you can find interesting things where ever you go.



  1. Very true Latane, I find them just walking around my own neighborhood.

    If you try hard enough you can find interesting things where ever you go. Lots of time you don't have to try hard.
