Air Force One

Arguably the biggest attraction at the Ronald Reagan Library & Museum is Air Force One. Obviously it's not the current one, but it was in service from 1973 to 2001 and carried Presidents Nixon, Carter, Ford, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton and George W. Bush.
While you can walk through it (a fascinating experience where the history is palpable), photos are not allowed within, so all I have are these exterior shots.
There's also a Marine One, the helicopter that flies the President.

Oval Office?

Is this the oval office? No, it's an exact replica at the Ronald Reagan Library and Museum, in Simi Valley, California, where I visited last year.
Regardless of your politics, it's an interesting place to visit, and I'll have more photos from it in the next couple of weeks. I'll finish this post with his grave.

Colorado Springtime

On Saturday I went for a hike with Socks; it was over 70° F (21° C).
 On Monday morning I woke up to 11° F (-12° C) and several inches of fresh snow in the front yard.
There's more photos to come from the hike. Visit Skywatch Friday for more beautiful skies.

Keukenhof 1977 (2)

I'm trying to put up at least one post a week, despite my move preparations. This week's effort is another 1977 photo from the Keukenhof - what a glorious spring day that must have been!

Keukenhof 1977 (1)

The Keukenhof is a huge flower garden in Holland, with the most impressive display of flowers that I've ever seen. Here's the first of a couple of slides from 1977 that I've scanned.
If you're in the area this time of year it's a must-see. And it's my entry for Vintage Weekly and Floral Friday.

My life continues to be extremely busy as we're packing up for a possibly move, so my blogging will continue to be very inconsistent for a while.
