Barry Visits Graeme Park/Keith House

I like this historic house a lot.  It was built-in 1728 by the Keith Family.

The property was a huge asset during the Revolutionary War for both Washington’s and Howe’s Forces.  The Patriots used this property during the local battles.  When the British took over the area with their victories against the Americans after the Battle of Brandywine.  They set up encampment here using the farms resources.

It was a hot and steamy afternoon but well worth the trip.  Stop by if you are ever in the Horsham area!

Air Victory Museum

The Roomie heard about the Air Victory Museum last summer but this is the first chance we’ve had to see it.

The Summer of Barry continues with this museum.  They had a piece of the 911 site and an exhibit to the tragedy of 911.  It is a part of American History now.  It brought up sorrow but it was an important exhibit.

There were many planes.  Model Planes and some helicopters.

Buddy is a history lover from way, way back.  There were exhibits for Amelia Earhart and the Hindenberg Disaster.

Barry was thinking how cool it would be to fly one of these jets.  Fast and Furious….mach 3 style!

When we left we headed over to Mt. Holly, NJ for some lunch.  Jimmy and Eddie found the food amazing and the beer even more amazing, lol!

The Graduation

The Summer of Barry includes a momentous High School Graduation!  Yes I’m narrating this as if it’s coming from someone else, lol.

I had fun with the parents who were hootin’ and hollerin’ for their kids and their friends 🙂

The boy got his diploma and then it was our turn to hoot and holler, lol.  The Roomie was yelling very loud!

The Graduation ended just before dusk.  Pictures were taken and hugs exchanged.

Then I asked the aged old question plaguing Americans at night…what’s for dinner?

Congratulations to all those who are Graduating in 2017!

The Faces of Barry

So I haven’t really had much time this week to do a lot.  I took some snapchats with The Roomie.  That was fun.

For some reason I think I look like Jerry Garcia. Weird, right?

Someone told me this week I look like this guy…I’m flattered because he’s awesome but I’m not really sure I look like the Former President of the United States.  I mean we both like blue ties but that’s where it ends 😉

I miss the beach very much.  I know vacation is a ways off but I hope we get to go back and see the beach before then.  I’m miss the ocean.  True Story.
