fly me to the moon

If you stopped by to see pictures of the zipper pouches, this is going to be a disappointing day for you. 

Unless you happen to like old planes.  Then you're in for a real treat. 

I haven't had a chance to take pictures of everything I've been working on this week, but I did realize this morning that I never shared our trip to the Carolinas Aviation Museum.  We went two weeks ago, as a sort of vacation kick-off.  Steve had been dying to check it out and they had some cool old planes visiting for a few days, so the timing worked out just right. 

The museum itself is made up of a gift shop and about fifteen planes in a hanger.  I think that if there hadn't been a special event going on it would have been pretty anti-climatic. 

But- outside the museum, you could check out the only flying B-29 in the world and one of the only two flying B-24s in the world.  And if you're into planes, that would be very exciting to you.  There were lots of boy scout troops there.  And very old men. 

Personally, I thought it was hilarious that the planes are named "Fifi" and "Diamond Lil" and have pictures of scantily clad women painted on them.  No wonder there were so many boy scouts and old men wandering around. 

You could even pay a little extra and go inside the planes, which Steve did.  I sat outside on the ground with an elderly lady who announced that she hadn't seen her husband in over an hour and she wondered if he had forgotten he brought her with him and gone home without her. 

Although I am nowhere close to being an airplane enthusiast, I will say that the planes were pretty cool.  And Steve had so much fun that I was really glad we went. 

Is anyone else more than ready for a weekend?  I'm trying to get as much done as possible today so that tomorrow I can get back to lounge chair mode.  Hope your weekend plans include some lounging too!

ps- did you notice that registration is open for summer sewing classes?  Only a few more days to sign up!
