Holdrege, NE 7-4-2013

Still at the Prairie Museum, Holdrege, NE. 4th of July. Adding more photos from this 65,000 square foot Museum.

Rocker like my grandparent's.

Old washing machines.

Old stoves

Old vacuums.

Table and chairs we had as kids.

Lots of dolls.

I had a Storybook doll. Mine had a red plaid skirt. Oh, memories.

We had this.

Like my clarinet.

Corrina was in Camp Fire.

Gene and Ted were in Cub and Boy Scouts.

Period rooms.

What an amazing Museum for such a small town.

Lutheran Church on site.

Merry go round outside of the school. Brings back memories.

Made of barbed wire.

House on site.

Many familiar things on the pantry shelves.

Potbelly stove to heat the house.

Wire frame bed.

20th Century Veterans Memorial, North Platte, NE

From December 25, 1941 until April 1, 1946 more than 6 million servicemen and women who traveled through Nebraska during World War II were met by volunteers who prepared and served sandwiches, coffee, cookies, cakes, and other homemade ‘goodies’ during stops there.

On our way to Cheyenne, WY. Green (corn) and Gold (wheat) fields. The rolling hills of Iowa have flattened in Nebraska.

We stayed at Pilot Truck Center. Been another full day of discovery.
