Feb 16th, I went to Ringling Museum for a tour. Tickets were $25.00 for the tour But worth it to see all the grounds. First I went to the Circus Display of a Minature Big Top on a table top covering hundreds of square feet. This was all hand carved display of the earlier circuses. The detail was something to see. I spend at least 2 hours here before moving on to see the rest of the grounds. here are some pics. of the circus.. enjoy..

Here is Mom and me working the gate for 2 days, sunday & tuesday for a 2 hour shift. There are about 300 rigs here. Our job was to check to see if they are registered, if not we collected the fee before they can park. Most have paid ahead of time.

After working, we joined the Central Penn Unit and went out to Dutch Heritage Resturant for the afternoon brunch. All you can eat for $9.99 Salad bar/soup/ and a meat and potatoes buffet...yum..yum. No need for supper tonight.

Then we drove downtown to see the Navy Sailor kissing the Nurse statue about 40 feet tallQuite a sight to see. Then back to the fairgrounds for the evening program.

Today we rested around the airstream only 82* today, I think I got sunburned too God Bless AirstreamHobo & Mom

Feb. 14, 2012, Ok lets back up 2 weeks.. I volunteered at Give Kids the World. This is where kids from Make a Wish come to stay while fullfilling their Wish of Disney World!! There are 142 Villas here for them to stay in.

I had volunteered doing a list of various jobs such as ... Merry go Round operator, Photographer, Door Greeter at the Gingerbread House(dinner time) and also Kids night out(Mom help at this one). Then Obie appeared for other nights.. The Christmas Parade(I had the honor of sharing Santa's Dressing Room). Also Mayor Clayton's Birthday Party making Balloons, and also I was in the GingerBread House entertaining the families while at Dinner. That was a fun night.

These 2 weeks went by so fast but I got in 6 days of service, then off to Disney World also. The Kids and families had so much fun at GKTW with all the things to do all week, it kept them running!! One mom was even glad when the pool was closed at night due to rain so she could go back to the Villa to Rest and Sleep.

God Bless... AirstreamHobo & Mom

I Love Ferris Wheels! .. Next to our campground, Ponderosa RV Park, there was a county fair this weekend. On thursday night I passed the lot and saw this Ferris Wheel all lit up, there thousands of lights on the wheel and set to a computer to change every minute. So stopped and set up the tripod in the field and took 200 night shots. All the shots are with the camera, I only added stars to some but the rest are the way the wheel was on display. You could see this from the highway as the ferris wheel was enormus in height, it took them 2 days to errect the whole thing. I hope you like my shots.
Enjoy!! God Bless AirstreamHobo and Mom
Feb 9, 2012.. Here we are at The Magic Kingdom. We came with friends Dick and Fran Marquette, they work here and took us in as guest 3 different times. First we went to Animal Kingdom, then to Epcot, then to The Magic Kingdom on 3 different days in 2 weeks time. What wonderful hosts, they knew their way around and showed us the highlights each day. Each day was tiresome on our bodies It's been 23 years since we were here, but we felt like kids again. A BIG THANK-YOU to Fran & Dick!! I love Magic Kingdom.. You can see the pictures I took ..

This a Great Family Place and should be done with your kids at least once.. The Smiles on Kids faces are awesome !!! I will post more later.. But we have been in Florida for 3 weeks now and having a Blast..
